RESIDENCY AT MASTER HYANGJONG OH'S STUDIO, SOUTH KOREA, AUTUMN 2018
In late 2018 I have had the profound honour to work and live for three months at the studio of ceramic artist and onggi Master Hyangong Oh in South Korea. See the video below for an unique insight into the onggi making process from making, glazing to kiln loading and firing in a noborigama kiln from whilst I was there. 
And here's more information about Hyangjong Oh's practice who is represented by CrimsonEarth:

FUTURE LIGHTS AWARD AND WORKSHOP
In September 2017 I was one of six ceramic artists to win the Future Lights competition, the third round of the European competition promoting contemporary ceramics.

'The Future Lights competition is designed to build new bridges and provide a platform for recent graduates to further their careers.' Wilhelm Siemen, Director, Porzellanikon

The competition is led by the Porzellanikon museum and it was co-organised by Staffordshire University, the Design and Craft Council of Ireland and the British Ceramics Biennial. The 2017/2018 theme of the competition was diversity – of materials, people, methods, approaches, and cultures.

Fellow winning artists: Chloë Dowds, Maria Gasparian, Ahryun Lee, Weronika Lucińska, and Sophie Southgate.

In early February 2018, the winners took part in the Ambiente consumer goods trade fair in Frankfurt, Germany.
In summer 2018 we have had the unique opportunity to do a two-week design project at Villeroy and Boch in Germany and Luxembourg.
