Jongjin Park; Artistic Stratum III $5,250>

Unique. The artist harmoniously combines materials that are seemingly at odds with one another to create his sublime sculptures. He paints porcelain slip onto single sheets of everyday kitchen paper. Jongjin then layers up to 1000 individual sheets of paper to form spectacular millefeuille vessels with amazingly varied and surprising textures. After firing in the kiln only the porcelain stays. The paper burns away. The innovative technique was developed by Park based on his experience with the centuries-old Moonjar craft, a process which evolved during the Imperial Joseon Dynasty (1392-1897).
