Artist Note

I wanted to embrace the gravity of this piece. The firmness of the base creates a sort of stabiltiy and safety. I wanted to celebrate the long history of Korea's "Kiwa" (the roofs in traditional architecture.)The classic line was inspired by the Shilla dynasty's earthenware, "Onggi" where it upholds a vase with its legs.
