Jin Eui Kim
Meet the Artist
Jin Eui Kim is an internationally renowned ceramic artist. Originally from South Korea, he now lives with his family in Cardiff, UK.
Whilst at Cardiff School of Art & Design Jin Eui studied the illusory effects of the application of tonal bands to three-dimensional surfaces. He graduated with a MA and PhD in Ceramics. He was then accepted into Graduate Residence at Fireworks Clay Studios, Cardiff and remains a full time member. He is also a member of Contemporary Applied Art (CAA) and the Craft Potters Association (CPA).
Jin Eui’s passion is to explore tonal effects and spatial illusions by using gradient in tone, width of bands and interval between bands, resulting in works that are both visually and intellectually challenging.
Industry and artistic recognition led Jin Eui to be selected for the AWARD exhibition in the British Ceramics Biennial in 2013 and the HOT ROOKIES special exhibition for the Gyeonggi International Ceramic Biennale in Korea. He has been awarded several prizes including the Emmanuel Cooper Prize at Ceramic Art London 2018, Best Maker in Wales at Made by Hand fair, winner of the China & Glass category at the Homes & Gardens Designer Awards, and was selected for the Best Ceramics at Contemporary Craft Festival, the second Best Demonstrations at Art in Action and the Valentine Clays Peers Award at Art in Clay.
