Jin Eui Kim is a ceramic artist, originally from South Korea. He graduated from Cardiff School of Art & Design with a MA and PhD in Ceramics, during which time he studied the illusory effects of application of black through to white to three-dimensional surfaces.
Jin Eui explores in depth tonal effects and spatial illusions, creating works that are both visually and intellectually challenging. He makes both none-functional sculpture works of horizontal and vertical cylinder forms and functional ware, applies the principles of creation of illusory spatial phenomena such as gradient in tone and size of bands. He also tries to understand more, the quality of clay and how it can be combined with subtle variations of tone to create the illusory spatial phenomena.
