Young Mi Kim is a Korean ceramicist who works and teaches in Woodstock, New York. Young Mi’s pieces are painstakingly hand built. She layers strands of clay in a coil, slowly and carefully working upward as she discovers the shape. She writes, “In essence, each layer marks time and space. When I hand build my pots, it is a form of meditation. It is my attempt to live in grace: like an open vessel, empty and yet full.” Young Mi is also a gardener, and her time in nature clearly influences her work. Her sculptures often resemble flowers, seed pods, fungi and other organic forms. This smaller work has a wonderfully mottled surface because of the painstaking process of pitfiring. There is a patina to it similar to the algae one finds on vessels exposed to water or humidity for a long time. It could be a large barnacle, or a coral flower. Young Mi’s undulating vessels are a leap of faith: after the hours it takes for her to built their delicate shapes, she never knows if they will survive their time in the kiln. Each unique work represents a single success after much trial and error.
