Lee Jong Min
I use a medical dental drill bit to carve the surface of white porcelain, from a form thrown on a wheel, to create delicate patterns. This work requires an enormous amount of patience, and I feel a sense of accomplishment that stays in my hands for a long time. My work preserves and respects craftsmanship and traditional pottery making techniques as much as possible. I try new things through my own research and creative practice in each process of preparing materials and creating works. I look for the subject matter of my work in various places in the vastness nature. The material starts from a tiny part that is invisible and sometimes becomes a point beyond the landscape. The materials found in this way are sometimes seeds, reborn as water droplets, condensing energy into flower buds. My work is the most positive combination of the results of constantly finding, recording, and experimenting in the great flow of nature.
