Hayoon Kim was born in 1977. She loved drawing and creating art since her childhood, and followed her passions to art school, eventually obtaining a doctorate in ceramic design.
Since 2006, Hayoon runs her ceramic studio, Another Ceramic, in Seoul,
Korea. The name “Another” conveys her philosophy of creating ceramics that are artistic yet practical and usable. She actively exhibits her work at Art Galleries and
global trade shows, and collaborates with well known boutiques and brands in Europe. She also teaches pottery to university students in Korea. Her designs are unique, one-of-a-kind pieces of art which you can use in everyday life.
Work as a ceramist, her biggest attention is ceramic itself. Tableware that is used in daily basis is used for limited purposes due to its functions. Each of the items has formative functions such as teapot’s mouth, handle of pot, and height of dishes. She wants to emphasis the function s of each tableware by recreating pottery.
