A first generation Korean-American Potter living in Chicago, David T Kim continues to explore the idea that perfection can arise from flaws. By utilizing multiple processes to create his work, each piece is a unique result of the individual care and skilled technique that David uses in the creation process.
David’s greatest satisfaction, however, comes from creating and sharing with people. He finds particular inspiration from the “farm to table” movement in the culinary world. Just as a diner would better appreciate their dinner if they knew the source of the ingredients, the farmer that grew those ingredients, and the chef that cooked it, he believes that the public would better appreciate art if they understood the medium, the artist, the techniques, and the passion that went into creating it.
