  • Eight years ago, Alex and I were classmates in Rome. Six years ago, we were neighbours in Brooklyn. Unfortunately don’t see much of him these days, but seems he’s always up to a dozen or so new and interesting things, and is always an inspiration. Nice to see him get some Booooooom love.

  • These are great! Thanks for posting, seem like visions we have worried about, but beautiful and reflective.

    Really beautiful. I love the technique, but most of I love the theme and the evidence of past human activity, but the lack of actual humans. Call me sociopathic, but to me these look like really beautiful places. I think the evidence of what (was) todays chaotic western consumerist culture contrasted with the lack of movement after that culture has disappeared makes these pieces seem so much more peaceful, and our existence in the here and now seem so much noisier and aggressive. Really good stuff!

Since 2001 Korean artist Yeesookyung has taken these porcelain fragments, creating beautiful, imperfect sculptures by fusing them with gold leaf in the Japanese tradition of kintsugi. See more images from “Translated Vase” below.
