HoJung Kim

Show RCA work

Major project:

I create objects that have an awareness of the space they occupy; through the movement of colours within a variety of forms. While at the Royal College of Art, I have found that material exploration and investigation of different production processes can ignite a project. 

It is in this manner that I developed the surface qualities of these vessels, which explore movement and harmony – colours drift across the forms. The world is unfathomably diverse, consisting of many cultures; each with unique habits and traditions. This collection aims to capture something of this diversity, through the touch of the maker’s hand, colour, and clay.


  • HoJung Kim is an artist from South Korea, using ceramics to explore the relationship between colours, community and material investigation. Kim has exhibited within the United Kingdom, Europe and Asia. During her studies at the Royal College of Art, HoJung Kim has applied a mixture of traditional craft techniques and industrial methods to create objects, which invoke a sense of elegance. Her objects create an awareness of the space in which they sit, and their relationship to one another.
