About Woochang

Kim woochang is a contemporary ceramic artist living and teaching in Sydney Australia. In his 19 years as a ceramic artist, Kim woochang has mastered both traditional korean and contemporary creative techniques of ceramics. Woochang endeavours to capture human emotions and expressions through his ceramics. “In my work, I start with the beauty created by Korean artists in the past. In pottery, I focus on the inlay techniques of celadon porcelain, the decorative techniques of Bhuncheong porcelain, and the shapes of the white porcelain. In addition, I want to express the beauty from the curves and decorative techniques found in hanok (traditional Korean houses) and other types of artisanal tools and objects in the past. I would like to introduce various Korean traditional artisanal beauty through my ceramics”.
