Her work was also exhibited in Craft Trend Fair and Seoul Design Art Fair. Her work, developed in her second master course in the UK, has been seen at Saatchi Gallery, Tomasso, Llantarnam Grange, Cardiff MADE Gallery, and Art in clay.



Yusun is the winner of CICC 2019 Craft at CheongJu international Craft Competition and a finalist of the 2021 BADA Art Award. She is the recipient of the Franz Rising Star Scholarship. She participated in multiple projects for the national fork museum of Korea, Kookmin University, and Cardiff Metropolitan University.

More About Yusun Won

IconInspires

What inspires you?

Artefacts that I see in museums inspire me. My practice started from the observation of a Korean liquor bottle made by attaching two different pieces. Seeing a joint part, I thought that opening an enclosed space could be a way to reveal emptiness.

IconCreative

Describe your creative process.

What I do is divide a vessel form into two forms and create a new small space. Through a small space, my work crosses a boundary between ordinary objects and art objects.
