Minji Jung, born 1983 in Gimhae, South Korea, studied Ceramic Art at Seoul and Barcelona. She runs her own studio in Barcelona since 2012.
"The motivation of my work is to begin from making small things for life."
When I studied art at the university, I was skeptical about Art being exclusive only for the privileged class and I decided to do Art for the public that provide an easy approach so as easy understanding of Art.
I've been studying and searching for all kinds of usable ceramic containers in daily life since I became a ceramist. I'm fully devoted to experimentation, seeking beauty in porcelain. Especially, I appreciate humanity, sense of humor and originality that complete my work as the meaningful object.
