Mokspace has done it again with an exhibition of affordable pieces which are a pleasure to look at. And with the current exhibition the pieces are a pleasure to handle as well. And useful.
Kim So-yeop’s stoneware in particular begs you to pick it up and turn it in your hands. The rough texture and patterns are inspired by tree bark, and exudes an earthy quality which has a simple beauty.
Lee Chang-sook’s more refined, highly glazed work is a nice contrast. Her stand-out works are moon jars in a red copper-coloured glaze.
Both ceramists contribute beakers and tea-bowls which, at under £100 each give you the opportunity to pick up a unique and functional piece of craftsmanship.
Sun, Moon and Tree continues at Mokspace, 33 Museum Street, London WC1A 1LH until 7 April
