MEET RAMI KIM OF RAMI KIM STUDIO

Rami Kim was born in Seoul, Korea and is currently based in Glendale, California. Her formal artistic training began at art school in 2000, where she fell in love with animation-- fast forward to today, and she's producing some of our most sought-after ceramic home goods. Inspired by emotive human expression and the process of claymation, her artistic practice is something we at December Thieves admire and adore. Producing whimsical yet functional pieces we love, for any and all spaces in our homes.


YOU HAVE AN ANIMATION BACKGROUND- SO HOW DID YOU FIND YOUR WAY TO CERAMICS AND HOW DOES YOUR ANIMATION EXPERIENCE INSPIRE YOUR DESIGNS?

"I studied animation in school and I used to draw and animate characters using 2D animation techniques or stop motion animation. The last stop motion project I was working on, I ended up making a bunch of heads and busts as props and my porcelain figurines were born after that. Of course, my animation background will always inspire me and influence my work. Giving life and animate. That's what I am good at!"



WE HAVE MANY FAVORITES AMONG YOUR DESIGNS! WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE PIECES TO MAKE?


"I love working with any kind of coil built vessels, and sculptures. I just love building organic forms because they look more lively to me. Also, making mugs can be nice. It is such hard work but simply imagining people drink coffee or tea out of the mugs I made makes me happy."



DO YOU HAVE A STUDIO SOUNDTRACK? ARE YOU A MUSIC PERSON OR DO YOU LIKE TO HAVE ON THE RADIO/PODCASTS, OR WORK IN SILENCE?


"Oh, I love a little bit of everything. When I am working with my studio mates in the studio, we'd like to put on some music or radio. Lately, though we have been listening to lots of news updates since we are living in the craziest time. When I am working alone though, I like working in silence as well. "
