Yeo Kyung-lan is known for incorporating Korean folk paintings into her tableware. She started this approach eight years ago, when she realized how captivated she was with the colors in folk paintings along with the meaning captured through them. To Yeo, Korean pottery encapsulates humanity — they’re not too elaborate, and there’s a sense of purity. For this reason, her pieces can be best described as witty, modest yet refined.
