Kim Pan-ki

Comb Pattern Celadon Serving Dish

$275

Since 1983, Kim Pan-ki has been a full-time ceramicist, using the time to research, experiment and put into practice a variety of complex techniques. With this small plate, we see the simple yet effective results of the comb-pattern method, one that’s been celebrated in Korean culture for over 12,000 years. Note how it comes to life through delicate etchings on the clay’s surface, wonderfully enhancing the sleek form and drawing a notable juxtaposition with the celadon inner.

Meet the Maker:

Kim Pan-ki

While exploring the National Museum of Korea, Kim Pan-ki came across the celadon masterpieces of the Goryeo period, a moment that kick-started his love for ceramics. A few years later, at the age of just 25, he travelled to world-famous ceramics centre, Icheon. Here, he worked at a number of workshops learning the art of pottery, before opening his own studio and establishing himself as a Ceramics Master ten years later. With each creation, the maker experiments with different techniques – from buncheong to celadon – while utilising the comb-pattern style, a method indigenous to Korea during the Neolithic period where handcrafted clay is fired in open or semi-open pits.
