The bowl is a significant object for the Korean culture. In it, many types of foods that reflect the Korean culture are served. The Korean song-pyun, or rice cakes, are handmade with care specifically for the Korean Thanksgiving. Using the same technique, my ceramic rice cakes are about remembering when families gather to make thousands of these rice cakes and give thanks. Each culture has specific food, objects or ceremonies that are significant in its history. The song-pyun reflect my Korean history and my identity. Placing ceramic objects in a bowl gives them significance as they are then held as precious objects. Wishing is about my wish to forever remember my Korean heritage.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
