  • Based on Korean pottery from the late Chosun dynasty, which influenced Japanese handmade pottery. The beauty of the Chosun dynasty is described as an ‘unconstrained’ life style. As can be seen from the Korean ‘Moon Jar’, it is one that is asymmetrical, unplanned, natural, simple and honest.

    It was Eunmi’s experience of living in the multi-cultural environment of London that made her reflect on her own roots and her own culture. Her first influences came from her father, a landscape gardener, who revealed and explained the beauty of nature to her as a child growing up in the idyllic island of Jeju in South Korea. These early childhood experience stayed with her and led her to devote herself to the study of ceramics in Korea.

    After this, she worked as a ceramics designer at the Korea Ceramic Foundation where she was involved in the Korean Ceramic-ware Globalisation project, researching ceramic tableware brands around the world before coming to London to work as a freelance ceramicist.
