How brilliant is the love of clay and fire

This exhibition will focus on the large porcelain sheets, with which the potter/painter is synonymous, and will demonstrate the deep and delicate connection between the fire and the clay, and by extension the paint, which is altered by the fire. This time, these plates are painted to show the traditional and special Korean ‘Moon jar’, with also the inclusion of two traditionally handmade Moon jars, created by Oh Manchul himself. The opening night will also see Oh creating his paintings on traditional Korean paper for the audience’s enjoyment and wonderment, which will also be accompanied by a live playing of traditional Korean music, using traditional instruments.
