JIN EUI KIM – Ceramic Sculpture

Jin Eui Kim is an internationally renowned ceramic artist. Originally from South Korea, he now lives with his family in Cardiff, UK.

Whilst at Cardiff School of Art & Design Jin Eui studied the illusory effects of the application of tonal bands to three-dimensional surfaces. He graduated with a MA and PhD in Ceramics. He was then accepted into Graduate Residence at Fireworks Clay Studios, Cardiff and remains a full time member. He is also a member of Contemporary Applied Art (CAA) and the Craft Potters Association (CPA).  Exploration with tonal effects and spatial illusions by using gradient in tone, width of bands and interval between bands is Jin Eui’s passion that results in works that are both visually and intellectually challenging.

Jin Eui’s work has been seen across the world, exhibiting relentlessly he has scooped up several awards while his  C.V. is extensive.  Industry and artistic recognition has led to selection for the AWARD exhibition in the British Ceramics Biennial in 2013, HOT ROOKIES special exhibition for the Gyeonggi International Ceramic Biennale in Korea. He has recently been announced as winner for Homes & Gardens Designer Awards with China & Glass Category.

Manchester Art Gallery and The National Museum (Wales) have both purchased his works recently for their permanent collections.
