The editorial staff asked these five artists a series of questions that covered both the practicalities of designing and making sets meant for use, and the ideas that drive each artist to create these kinds of pieces. The artists also share details about their studio process along with slip and glaze recipes.-Jessica Knapp, editor.

Sam Chung’s Wheel Throwing and Altering Process

Posted On October 20, 2014 5 Comments

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.

I think that for most ceramic artists, some of this collected work reminds us of the maker, who is also a friend, mentor, or someone we’re inspired by (a.k.a. a ceramic crush). Some pieces are great for dinner parties, while others are our daily companions. As makers, I think we are so lucky to have this cross-over experience, of both understanding how something is created, and understanding the important role that handmade objects play. They make experiences and our environment special, they connect us to others, make us think, and inspire us in the studio.
