Balloons. CERAMIC BALLOONS … gasp! Korean born, Los Angeles based artist Nina Jun creates these beautifully glazed, bold patterned, light as air balloons… that are far from light as air. “Her work challenges our concepts of comfort, levity, and gravity. Through these pieces, she hopes to expand views about roles that the ceramic material plays in the contemporary art world.” Mission accomplished!

    I saw her work at the LA Art Show last year and loved it– can’t believe I somehow forgot about her! Thank you for the reminder!
