Hee-Jun Ahn Artist Statement
My practice pushes function and form in ceramic vessels. They grow off of everyday objects and narrate abject functions of bodies. The thrown and hand-built clay parts are dressed with molten silica like tissues. Glazes, normally used to cover up pores in bisque wares ooze out to recite chromatic poetry.
