Blossom Jar 201103

Inspired by qualities of traditional Korean Moon jars, wheel thrown porcelain vessels are joining together imperfectly and risky in order to conceive natural movement from multiple firing process. Although my works are skilfully crafted and desire perfection, I do believe my works gain natural fluency from firing process

Like an alchemist Eunmi Chun searches for the philosopher's stone with her works of intestines and gold-plated hair.

"The skin of the animal is breeding ground for the germinating seeds, from which gold-plated human hair is sprouting. These are images from the cycle of life; images of progress and decay. They deal with the fact that life carries on, incessantly and forever changing".

3D Neckpiece 2011 oxidised silver, elastic thread

My aim is to explore the aesthetic value of combining non-traditional materials(elastic and cotton threads) with precious metals(Gold and silver), cultural forms and expressions, and to bring a personal colour to these experiments.

I am inspired by fields such as fashion and textiles, by combining disparate non-traditional elements to see the effect of their interaction and by the blending of moments from journeys across Europe with traditional Korean culture and craft. Ultimately, I hope to reflect my sence of beauty through my jewellery when it is worn on the body.

"My work is based on the theme "East meets West", which is the meeting and the interplay between materials and forms, methods, techniques and literature. In every step of my jewelry creation I combine the Eastern traditional boundaries and the Western modern boundaries, reaching the realm of where objects adorn the body using contrast, tension, absence and presence."
