One of Korea's True Master Potters Calls It Quits- Thank You Sel Young Jin
One of Korea's best potters has stopped making wares. David Louveau passed this information on with kind words and a gift, a beautiful teapot, a few weeks ago. David Louveau studied under Sel Young Jin- heavy influences of this master can be seen in his work.
Sel Young Jin specialized in erabo style and his pieces were some of the most stunning of any modern potter. He infused a Zen mind with that of a potters mind and made them one in his works. Drinking from his cups and tea bowls you can taste this mind- peaceful and still within the contrasting raw and natural texture of his works.
According to David Louveau, Sel Young Jin has taken to deepening his meditation. One takes solace in knowing that he is still sharing many cups of tea with family and friends at his tea table.
Thank you Sel Young Jin.
