About the Presenters
Minsoo Yuh was born and raised in Seoul, Korea and earned a B.F.A and M.F.A in Ceramics from Hongik University. She did a 2-year apprenticeship with Injin Lee while attending graduate school. After receiving her M.F.A, she moved to the United States and has been working with clay since as a full time studio potter in Athens, GA. She makes but is not limited to high-fired utilitarian pottery and her work is a reflection of emotions and perceptions of the meanings of life and human nature through the natural characteristics of clay and aspects of nature.
Sunkoo Yuh was born in 1960 in South Korea, immigrated to the U.S. in 1988 and now resides in Athens, GA, where he is a professor of art at the University of Georgia. He received his BFA degree from Hong Ik University, Seoul, Korea and his MFA degree from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred, NY.
Sunkoo Yuh’s ceramic sculpture compose of tight groupings of various forms including plants, animals, fish, and human figures. While Korean art and Buddhist, Christian and Confucian beliefs inform some aspects of his imagery, his work is largely driven by implied narratives that often suggest socio-political critiques. Yuh’s current focus on type of architectural-scale sculpture and on pushing his medium to its limits of size.
It is our mission to support artists, the creative process and to provide a place for professionally minded ceramic artists to create new work. Red Lodge Clay Center hosts Visiting Artist workshops, lectures, demonstrations, gallery exhibitions, and educational programming to share with our resident artists and the general public the importance of art in our everyday lives. Red Lodge Clay Center is fully committed to being actively anti-racist, and to work for lasting and systemic changes in the field of ceramics and in our community.
