About Artists:
Insig Kim uses the technique of mixing different colors of soil to make the pattern appear on the surface. While normal “Yeonri” techniques create patterns by mixing soil with large differences in color, Insig Kim’s technique is more unique in creating patterns on porcelain because he uses only white soils with different chroma. The artist's work, named 'Baekyeonri', creates the illusion that only the most beautiful part of the fine marble has been extracted and polished in the form of ceramics. After graduating from the Department of Ceramics at Seoul National University of Science and Technology, Kim received his Ph.D. from the Graduate School of Art, Kyoto Seika University, Japan. In recognition of the artist's unique artistic world and beauty, his works were invited to individual and group exhibitions at Takashimaya Art Sarong in Japan, Monoha Hannam in Korea, and several art galleries. The artist is currently working as an adjunct professor at Hanyang Women's University and Seoul National University of Science and Technology.

Jeongwon Lee creates his glass jars using the blowing technique, which creates shapes by blowing glass melted at a high temperature at over 1100 degrees. The blowing technique is a task that blows the hot glass through a long pipe at the right temperature and time, and it requires breathing in the air at the right time. His glass jars made in this way possess both delicacy and boldness, flexibility and strength. The gold jar made by mixing gold powder expresses boldness and splendor, while the white gradation jar boasts delicacy and mystery. After graduating from the Graduate School of Art Fusion Design at Kyunghee University, he has exhibited his works through various domestic and international exhibitions such as Choeunsook Life & Style Gallery, Cheongju Korean Craft Center, and Aquarium de Nancy (France). In 2016, he received the Glass Sector Association Award from the Korea Craftsmen Association, and is currently a lecturer in the Department of Ceramics at Kyunghee University.

Jungmo Kwon uses Korean paper, called Han-ji, and copper to create soft but attractive lighting. By using Han-ji, the artist creates modern design lighting in a soft yet sophisticated form through the harmony of organic materials and copper that conveys warmth. While studying industrial design at IED (Istituto Europeo di Design) in Barcelona, Spain, he deeply considered Korean aesthetics and the way of modernizing it. In 2017, he rediscovered the characteristics of Han-ji, the traditional paper and has tried to modernize the Korean tradition by using the light-transmitting property of it. His lighting explores the formativeness that light creates in space and the dramatic possibilities of the space created by the light.The artist studied industrial design at the Instituto Europeo di Design in Barcelona, Spain, and continues to present works through

various exhibitions and collaborations. His work, which is a beautiful harmony between traditional materials and modern design, won the grand prize at the Hanji Craft Design Competition hosted by the KCDF in 2018 and the Lexus Creative Awards in 2019.
