"The world we live in is enormously diverse, consisting of people of different races and backgrounds with different characteristics, each living in state of conflict and harmony. This collection aims to capture this diversity through manipulation of clay and forms of colour."

"FLOW Collection dynamically expresses the movement of colours within a variety of forms. Inspired by observing the everyday world, I have tried to develop imagery exploring the themes of “synthesis”, “movement” and “harmony”."

"In the texture of the surfaces, following the undulating, natural trajectory of the blue and white dots, lines, and spaces, we can perceive the fluid, arcing gesture and movement of forms around the exteriors of the vessels, expressing the beauty, diversity and harmony of the boundless flow of colour."

"The process of making my vessels involves decorating the surface with an unexpected combination of forms that produce various patterns of colour. Through coincidence, dots, lines, and spaces are created and connected in a single space the vessel."

HoJung Kim is an artist from South Korea, using ceramics to explore the relationship between colours, community and material investigation. HoJung has exhibited within the UK, Europe and Asia. In 2019 she graduated from the Royal College of Art's renowned MA Ceramic & Glass course where she developed her FLOW collection - applying a mixture of traditional craft techniques and industrial methods to create objects which create an awareness of the space in which they sit.
