“Jongjin Park (South Korea -1982), investigates the remarkable ability of ceramics to deceive the eye. By experimenting with layering paper and porcelain slip, he has created giant millefeuilles which are at once delicate, strong and have an almost wood-like quality. In using fragile paper and ‘hard’ porcelain slip, he’s is able to manipulate the senses and makes you wonder what is real.”
