           Choongmi Jung utilizes an ancient and revered medium and brings to it her contemporary vision. Jung creates
           works that embrace the medium of ceramics, while at the same time transcending it.  Korean art has a long and
           special history with ceramics. During the nearly five hundred years of the Goryeo Dynasty (918–1392), Korean
           celadon (Cheong-ja) reached the apex of elegance and form. Their quiet gray-green hues and graceful lines  
           had a profound impact on the aesthetic development and the tastes of the culture.  To this day, ceramics hold a
           special place in the arts of Korea.  

          Her work reflects a deep commitment to the form, but at the same time, she is not afraid to break the rules, blazing 
          a new path, reviving the form, and keeping it relevant for a new century. Some of Jung's twisted abstractions are
          achieved after she throws a perfect pot or vase on the wheel, then lifts it, and while the clay is still wet, drops it on 
          the floor. The misshapen abstract form that results is then glazed and fired in the same way it would have been 
          if the shape of the pot remained intact.  Jung lets the new piece retain hints of its past, while expressing a new 
          idea through a novel and arresting visual form.
