Sun Kim

Home Artists Sun Kim



Brought up in Brazil, Sun Kim is a Korean potter who moved to the UK in 2004 to begin her assistantship with Edmund de Waal. Having studied ceramics in Sao Paulo (Brazil) and Alfred University in America, in 2007 she set up her own studio in London where she continues her practice.
With such a diverse cultural upbringing, Sun Kim explores traditional and contemporary aesthetics within her work, producing a range of functional ware with a distinct visual language. The making process is a continual challenge, and her personal investigation into form, shape and volume.
