Open to artists of all skill levels

Register online or call 406/443-3502 ext. 11

In this one-day demo-only workshop, Sunkoo Yuh will make a three-dimensional narrative porcelain sculpture that contains tight groupings of various forms, including plants,
animals, fish and human figures. Yuh’s work is informed by his personal and intimate experiences in everyday life. He records these impressions as spontaneous yet intricate ink and brush works. He will demonstrate his unique way of transforming his intuitively and spontaneously made drawings into three-dimensional sculptures. Participants will learn about various construction methods for making complicated sculptural forms, applying and enhancing a sculpture with glaze and problem-solving while constructing.
Yuh will discuss his own methods of constructing, loading, unloading, firing, glazing and installing large-scale architectural sculptures.

Sunkoo YuhSunkoo Yuh was born in Seoul, Korea. After three years of military service, Yuh earned his BFA from Hong-Ik University, Seoul, Korea, in 1988. That same year, Yuh immigrated to the U.S. where he spent a period of time at the University of California, Long Beach, before obtaining an MFA from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University, New York, in 1997.

Yuh’s work won the grand prize in the second World Ceramic Biennale 2003 Korea International Competition, and in 2006, he was awarded a grant in sculpture from the Joan Mitchell Foundation. His work is included in important private and public collections, including the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, D.C.; Icheon World Ceramic Center, Icheon, Korea; the Museum of Fine Art, Houston; the International Museum of Ceramic Art, Alfred, New York; the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; and the Seoul Museum of Art, Seoul, Korea.

A professor at the Lamar Dodd School at the University of Georgia in Athens, Yuh continues to exhibit both nationally and internationally.

2017 Voulkos Visiting Artist Fellowship

The Bray is pleased to award Sunkoo Yuh with the 2018 Voulkos Visiting Artist Fellowship. Yuh will spend a few weeks in September at the Bray working in the Voulkos Visiting Artist Studio.

The Voulkos Visiting Artist Fellowship was created in memory of the renowned ceramic artist Peter Voulkos. His family and friends established the fellowship at the Archie Bray Foundation to invite a distinguished artist to work at the Bray each year. Peter Voulkos taught by example, working alongside other artists in the studio, fostering artistic exchange and dialogue, and nurturing mutual respect. In the same spirit, the Voulkos Fellow is invited to work in an environment that encourages interaction among the artists and the Bray community.
