When Sam Chung stumbled across a book of Korean Cloud motifs, he decided to explore pairing them with traditional Korean pottery forms, and his cloud series was born.
In today’s post, an excerpt from the November 2014 issue of Ceramics Monthly, Sam shares his wheel throwing and altering process, which results in pots that look like they are peering out from behind puffy clouds.- Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
PS. Check out the November 2014 issue of Ceramics Monthly to see Sam’s China Painting process, as well as his liner glaze recipe.
We’re focusing on regeneration in this issue, with work by both Sam Chung and Margaret Bohls, who have explored different bodies of work throughout their careers. Their stories are well worth the read, and may even help you in your own creative path.–Jessica Knapp, editor.
