Beyond Stools

2015 - 2017 

They look like stools at first galance. You may indeed sit on these objects that radiate dynamic energy, but in a moment of time, you come to realise there being itself. In your small garden, in your comtemporary library or beside your bright bathtub, they are to be contemplated, touched and embraced, just like your adored pebbles in a mountain stream. 

These elegant objects are handbuilt by Huh himself, and are applied the fameuse bakji technique to infuse life into dreaming fishes, lotus pond and the rhythm of staccato.
