To celebrate Light Night, ceramic artist Jin Eui Kim will be giving a talk about his work here at Bluecoat Display Centre at 5pm (on Friday 13th May). His beautiful ceramics are currently on display In The Window until the end of May.


There will also be an opportunity to ask Jin questions and hear more about his artistic career. Jin Eui Kim uses subtle tones of colour and monochrome applied to the surface of ceramics to explore how perception can be altered. He graduates each line and uses different types of width, interval, tone and spacing to create various impressions to the eye.

Jin says of his work “My work explores how the perception of three-dimensional ceramic forms can be manipulated by the application of arrangements of bands on their surfaces. Depending on the arrangement of tonal bands, using gradients of width, interval or tone and contrast, illusory spatial phenomena can appear and thus significantly influence the actual three-dimensional forms.

The duration of viewer’s attention, viewer’s position, tone or colour of the background are also crucial influencing factors for the creation of such illusions. The illusory phenomena created in these ways are intended to be intriguing, to capture the viewer’s imagination, and to offer new possibilities for the decoration of ceramic artworks."

His work was recently featured in the ‘Ornament‘ exhibition area of Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair 2015 in Manchester. Bluecoat Display Centre are delighted to exhibit his work for the month of May in 2016.

We will be open till 7pm on Light Night to celebrate the evening.
