Nancy Kwon’s ceramics echo the fragmented, serene qualities found in relics and artifacts. Her inspiration stems from the humble beauty of ancient Korean ceramics and her formal training in Japanese pottery. Kwon incorporates and reinterprets motifs from classical forms, such as traditional wares used in tea ceremonies or vessels used for food storage. Her calm and simple stylistic choices are informed by her belief in the ability to conjure profound, positive experiences for those in possession of her vessels. Kwon was born in Los Angeles and spent part of her childhood in Seoul, South Korea. She currently lives and works in New York City.
