Ro Hae Sin 노혜신

Popped into the Ceramics section at the V&A yesterday, and was very taken with these pieces in the modern Korean room.

They're by a Korean artist called Ro Hae Sin 노혜신, and according to this blog, she meticulously builds up layers of different colours, then scores the pattern into the work, revealing the hidden colours.  I love the tactile feel of the spheres, the sugared almond colours and the multi-layered patterns.  I've been pondering spherical embroidered pieces for some time, and hopefully these will prove to be fertile inspiration.
