She chose to work in ceramics because form and texture are very important to her. She likes to create basic shapes and designs and then work with intricate textures on top of these shapes.


She hand carved the thrown ceramic body into geometric shapes then use a knife to carve the textures to give handmade elements to each piece.

Her goal is to combine simple industrial designs with Korean traditional craft skills.

She hoped to create free textures on her ceramic products, which are not geometric or uniform and which a machine could not express.

Hyu-Jin is originally from South Korea, moving to the UK to study at Staffordshire University in 2013.
