Jiemin Park: Ashes to Ashes

July 24th – September 13th, 2024

Opening Reception July 24th from 6-8 PM.


Jiemin works primarily in fused glass, which she colors only with ash and soot. Her work takes the temporary things of everyday life - falling leaves, ordinary newspapers, and receipts - and captures their remains in glass.

The work is created only through the firing process without any help of artificial pigments. Collected materials change to ash and soot and form with a variety of colors, textures, and shapes within transparent glass. Comparing the transformations before and after firing, it is interesting to observe how ordinary things can be changed into something extraordinary. In this exhibition, Jiemin exhibits blown glass objects. She first made fused glass pieces and then used glass blowing techniques to make the pieces into three-dimensional objects shaped like traditional Korean jars.
