Title: Clouds

Artist: Sam Chung

This white and black glazed vase is wheel thrown and then altered and reassembled to create organic cloud-like shapes. The piece, as with the series it is a part of, is influenced by traditional Korean art and design in which clouds are a commonly used motif. Chung draws on an ancient Korean decorating technique known as sanggam in his application of black pigments to the piece. As a Korean-American, Chung professes a personal affinity for the amorphous nature of clouds. Throughout all of his work, Chung plays with the balance between form, function, and design. This piece is damaged.
