Jingdezhen is situated in a mountainous area and is regarded in the world as the “porcelain city” since the Song dynasty– it has a long history of over 1700 years of porcelain making.

George Jae Hyun Cho – Artist Bio

Originally from Seoul, Korea, George Jae-Hyun Cho earned his BFA in Ceramics from NSCAD University and a Diploma in Ceramics from Sheridan College. He was awarded the NSCAD-Lunenburg Community Studio Residency position in 2010 and was accepted into Harbourfront Centre’s Artist-in-Residence. Upon completing the contract with Harbourfront, he will be pursuing an MFA in Ceramics at West Virginia University beginning this September in Jingdezhen, China.

The displacement of familiarity brings forth transformations out of necessity, insecurity, or sentimentality. While universal experiences can take a unique personal manifestation, Cho was marked by adopting a new culture, where he searches for  self-identity directed by the medium of ceramics.

Through cultural understanding and adaptation, Cho seeks to find harmony within his personal and artistic struggles to transcend tradition but to also rediscover the spirit of tradition. Challenging the notion of utility and the virtue of classical beauty, the presence and absence of the metaphysical qualities of pottery are explored through deconstruction of ideas and forms. Currently, Cho’s work brings simple utilitarian objects to mimic iconic pottery forms and explore the notion of the ordinary into something unique and virtuous. With this new series of work, Cho continue to investigate the intersection between art and craft, everyday objects and the spectacle.

Denis Gagnon

While on a trip into Montreal to visit dealers, I happened across Denis Gagnon’s new boutique in Old Montreal (170B Saint-Paul West). Gagnon is renowned for his couture approach to leather and strings — beautifully designed, executed and flawlessly sexy.  I had the pleasure of meeting him in person he is gentle, kind and a flutter with creativity.
