Clay is timeless,
Warm, honest and pure.
Clay can embrace everything;
containing the power of life, the nutrients to grow and nourish fruit.
Whatever the subject matter of her art, Kim endeavors to revive its fundamental attribute in the clay. The energy of life and the inherent freedom found in this energy have been the main themes of her artwork.
The earthy, simple and spontaneous beauty of Korean Buncheong, a decoration technique using white slip on dark clay, attracted the artist . She reinterprets the technique with a modern viewpoint, applying the it to modern forms, and incorporate the influences of modern art.
