Through Landscape By Young-Mi Kim

I’m captivated by the quiet beauty, calming colors, and simple form of this unique ceramic collection, influenced by the artist’s experience of living in two very different cultures. Through Landscape is a series of ceramics by Korean artist and designer Young-Mi Kim, whose inspiration for these pieces came from her life in Sweden. Young-Mi’s ceramic collection became an outlet to convey her feelings about adjusting to Swedish life, while finding a connection to the foreign culture.

Unfamiliar with the country’s white nights and long, dark winters, Young-Mi’s also incorporated the mood and hues of Sweden’s landscape and weather into her works. The result is a beautiful blend of Nordic and Asian aesthetics and styles, which brings about a certain lightness and mysticism in her series. I’m especially taken by its unique color palette, predominantly white with subtle accents of green, brown and red. Be sure to check out all of Young-Mi’s gorgeous ceramics on her website!
