Potter Kyong-Hee Kim invites you to her studio on Tamborine Mountain, opening for the first time. Her inspiration comes from traditional ceramics and nature. 

Kyong-Hee studied ceramics in Korea, her country of birth, as well as in Italy. She has been living in Australia since 1997, initially as an artist-in-residence at the Sturt Craft Centre Pottery, Mittagong, and then in the Byron Bay hinterland.

After settling on Tamborine Mountain, she built a studio using an earth bag building method. Kyong-Hee makes functional wares in stoneware and porcelain. Her work features simple and traditional glazes and natural oxides. Recently she has been creating glazes with ash from Australian hardwood and working with the sculptural form of ikebana vases.
