Two Paths, Two Identities, One Individual explores Grace Han being somewhere in between as an artist. Although she was traditionally trained in Korea – where preserving the traditions of Korean ceramics was essential – she finds that she can be free and truly herself as an individual artist in her new home in Canada. Speaking two distinct languages has also broadened her views in art – she finds that the process is an important part of her work. By entering into the space that Grace Han creates, the audience can experience her struggles, interact with her work where her emotions have been captured, and see what she truly is in between.
Grace Han is a ceramic artist originally trained in Seoul, South Korea. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from Dankook University where she specialized in traditional Korean Ceramic techniques and skills. She then worked for several years in one of the largest ceramic companies in Korea and built on her ceramics knowledge and experience outside of academia. She immigrated to Canada in 2011 and is pursuing her career as a ceramic artist in her new home.
