South Korean Pottery Master

This short film almost makes me want to work in really, really big pieces, take up smoking and glaze to music.

Lee Kang-hyo is a soft-spoken true artist, who has tackled all the demons.  The film is an ode to discovering that the beautiful is right under our noses.

Towards the end, Lee dances a tango with one of his five-foot pots — they’re about equally covered in slip and glaze.  His hands caress the pot with the reverence only a great partner and lover can.

Enjoy:
