Rare Painted Ceramic Vase by the famous Korean Monk from Jeju Island, Ko Chang Nyul aka Jung Kwang Sunim (1935-2002). His ceramic work is much-sought after, and there are far fewer examples of his ceramics than there are of his paintings. A google search of Jung Kwang Mad Monk will reveal the fascinating life of this character, and you'll find a movie about him, and recent retrospective exhibitions, and the book 'The Mad Monk', and more. He and his work have been featured on CNN, PBS, NHK, and other major broadcasters. He was a famous monk, artist, poet, and actor. His unique works of art are instantly recognizable by their zen approach to form and color. 12 inches (30.5 cm) high, 22 inches (56 cm) circumference.

Joo Ji Wan's meditative groups of celadon and white stoneware cubes reference Korea’s ancient tradition of geometric patterns in a contemporary form. This set, recently displayed at the Korea Society exhibition, Korean Contemporary Ceramics, is the last of Joo Ji Wan's iconic and widely-published ceramic cube sets, as the artist moves on to other projects and ideas. This set was featured on the cover of the exhibition catalogue. Joo Ji Wan's work was also in From The Fire: Contemporary Korean Ceramics, an historic traveling exhibition of works by 54 of Korea’s best contemporary ceramic artists. It has traveled to major museums all over the world, and is the most important exhibition ever mounted on Korean contemporary ceramics. The artist given the very prestigious honor of having her work chosen for the front and back covers of the beautiful hardcover exhibition catalogue was Joo Ji Wan. In fact, her work alone was also chosen for the cover of all brochures and literature related to this most important exhibition, and so has become the symbol of contemporary Korean ceramics. So it is with great pride that the Korean Art and Antiques gallery announces that we are representing Joo Ji Wan, Korea’s leading celadon and porcelain artist. Her work has been exhibited at a long list of major museums, including the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco, Yale University Art Gallery, Freer/Sackler Gallery of Art, Indianapolis Museum of Art, Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, Harvard University Art Museum, Detroit Institute of Arts, Saint Louis Museum of Art, Newark Museum, American Craft Museum, Portland Art Museum, Society for Contemporary Crafts, Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, Seattle Asian Art Museum, Vancouver Art Museum, Royal Ontario Museum, and many others. It is appropriate that Joo offers her work in sets that are described with musical terms, such as Duo, Trio, Quartet, etc. Musical metaphor is almost required in describing Joo’s inlaid celadon and porcelain cube sets. Consider the melodic interplay of the pieces within a set, the rhythm of the patterns that are inlaid in each piece, and the harmony of the set as a whole. Just as music is mathematical but should not be predictable, Joo’s forms are simple, mathematically fundamental cubes that are inlaid with labyrinthine surprises rooted in Korea’s ancient tradition of geometric patterns imbued with centuries of meaning. Artistic innovation deeply rooted in Korea’s long celadon and porcelain tradition is what puts Joo Ji Wan at the vanguard of Korean art today. Each cube: 5.25 inches, 13.25 cm.

Seo Byung Ho was the recipient of the top prize in the 2009 World Ceramic Biennale, the highest paid ceramic art prize in the world. With this lovely pair of sculptural vases, Seo has combined the shape of a traditional vessel with the form of a fish, a symbol of eternal vigilance because the fish never closes its eyes. For the same reason, the fish is also a symbol of diligence that has long been a source of inspiration for Korean scholars, and is a common motif employed in scholar's implements. In the surface, color, and form of this delightful work, the Korean ceramic artist Seo Byung Ho shows why he is deserving of such top acclaim. 14.25 x 7.75 inches, 36 x 20 cm.
