PARK SUN YUL “Working with clay and fire is a pleasant addiction. The repetition of physical and mental labor demands a period of patience. But as I pass through this time with confidence and the joy of discovery, the labor becomes an energy that enables me to continue to enjoy the work. Thus, I am ready to be exhausted in the studio full of dirt again today. I want to express the smallness of my everyday life and my simple philosophy in various ways, demonstrating this through work that is interesting and free.”
