Sung-Jae Choi

Sung Jae Choi makes vessels in the Korean tradition of buncheong ware (late 14th to late 16th century), and his works are a powerful evocation of Korean aesthetics. A member of the International Academy of Ceramics, Sung Jae Choi studied ceramics at Hongik University and its Graduate School. He is currently a professor at the Korean National University of Cultural Heritage. His works are included in the collection lists of many prestigious domestic and overseas art museums and galleries including recently the Tikotin Museum (Israel), Victoria and Albert Museum (England), Art Institute of Chicago (Illinois), Newark Museum (New Jersey), and the Worcester Art Museum, (Massachusetts).

At the festival Sung Jae Choi will be making 20 different types of large plates, 5 flattened bottles, 4 slab built square bottles, 3 large size jars and some other small size plates and bottles. He will also demonstrate finger drawing on surface with white slip, inlaid stamped pattern, line inlaid pattern, brushed white slip and incised pattern, pouring white slip or dipping into white slip and finger drawing.
