MOON JAR COLLECTION_ CRAFT
The Moonjar Collection is inspired by traditional Korean ceramics, Moonjar. Its origin dates back to 17th century when people started to call this particular voluminous milky jar, which reminds of a full moon. Unlike other Asian porcelains, Moonjar is consists of two halves joined together in the middle. Its beauty of voluminous line, uneven shape, and rough texture influenced Japanese, initiated Ido pottery in Edo period. Hyunsoo Kim revamps Moonjar utilizing traditional production technique and properties of unconventional materials through textile artists' perspective.
