From the 2012 senior project exhibition
In his senior year, Joon Park ’12 created more than 300 ceramic pieces—including this one nearly five feet tall—for the two-semester independent project required of all studio art majors. This sculpture, notes Park, derives from the moon-jar shape produced during Korea’s Chosun (Joseon) dynasty (1392–1910) and is an amalgam of clay, cement, paint, and gold leaf. The title, NEO GU RI, refers to a popular South Korean brand of noodles. Park will study ceramic arts at Harvard in the fall.
