CELADONAPHONIC is a conflation of two words: ‘celadon’, a type of clay used in traditional Korean ceramics and ‘phonic’ meaning 'of sound'. Six artists (3 Korean, 3 British) have been commissioned to make new sound works about ceramics - some have used field recordings as the basis of their work, others have evolved more conceptual processes. The works, taken together, explore the nature and practice of two very different making cultures.
This sound walk is presented in Stoke-on-Trent as part of British Ceramics Biennial and also in Seoul as part of Resonance Festival in November.
Celadonaphonic is part of the Made in Korea project, a cultural dialogue between the UK and Korea, co-curated by ceramist Kay Aplin and sound artist, Joseph Young, in partnership with Hankil Ryu.
