Nancy Kwon is an artist based in New York City. She was born in Los Angeles and spent her summers in Seoul, South Korea where her family is from. Her work echoes the fragmented, serene qualities found in relics and artifacts. Much of her inspiration stems from ancient Korean ceramics and from her formal training in Japanese pottery. She incorporates and reinterprets motifs from classical forms, like traditional wares used in tea ceremonies or vessels used for food storage, creating work that recalls the history behind the material.
An incense dish that catches ash AND fits in with my home decor?! Obsessed - I love the texture and color (this is also my favorite gift for those hard-to-buy-for's!)
