Joon Hee Kim, a Canadian ceramic artist born in Seoul, Korea, has a curious mind. Her career started as a graphic designer then an art director in Seoul, yet she found the two-dimensional format too limited and craved to work in three dimensions. However, she followed a different path and attended the famous Le Cordon Bleu school in Ottawa to obtain a diploma in Patisserie in 2010. During her culinary studies, she discovered the work of Jun Kaneko at the Gardiner Museum of Ceramics, in Toronto. Kim says that “life is not always sweet as a pastry”1 that is quickly consumed. She decided to study ceramics at Sheridan College where she graduated with honours.
