Kim Pan Ki

Kim Pan Ki has created a signature celadon style that dissolves the line between traditional celadon and modern sculptural forms. The synthesis between surface textures inspired by Jeulmun (comb-pattern) decoration technique from Mesolithic and Neolithic periods in Korea (circa 8000 – 1500 BC) and modern shapes make his work feel simultaneously natural and bold. He is a proud Icheon Ceramic Master who not only preserves the technique and aesthetics from prehistoric Korea but also extends them into timeless beauty with contemporary taste.

Selected exhibitions include Constancy and change in Korean Traditional Craft 2017, La Triennale di Milano, Italy, 2017; Korean Modern Ceramic Exhibition, Musee des Artes Decoratifs, Paris France, 2015; Korea Ceramic Exhibition in Stuttgart, Wurttemberg State Museum in Old Castle, Stuttgart, Germany, 2014.
