Deok Ho Kim

By showing things “how they really are”, Deok Ho Kim is rooted in the tradition of minimalism. “When we see a circle or a straight line, we subconsciously always look for basic characteristics, such as symmetry and precision,” he explains. And it is precisely these objective “basic attributes” that can be found as a recurrent theme in all of his ceramics. Kim combines between five and seven vessels to form a set, whose individual pieces of disparate sizes, whether they are round or edged, are always characterized by perfectly harmonized proportions. Not easy to work into shape, the white ceramic material requires superlative craftsmanship and maximized precision. In conjunction with repetitive movements of the hands and the turning of the potter’s wheel, Kim creates objects of captivatingly simple shapes. Sales prices range from 500 to 3,000 euros.
