KOREAN CERAMIC ART
The story of Dogabi passed down from ancient times was told that Dogabi who had mysterious power as god appeared in different forms and brought luck or punishment to human. They frighten human with a bizarre face, playing mischievous tricks on human with childlike innocence, giving an abundance of life with a generous smile.

By capturing these characteristics and face expressions of the Dogabi in humorous and formative ways,the Ceramist Hyung Jun Kim strives for creating Dogabi series with subtle and extraordinary colors that only ceramics can produce. The one-of-kind Dogabi ceramic crafts represent diverse faces of the Dogabi, created by the artist’s imagination.
