Q&A with SaeRi Seo
Location: Cardiff, Wales
Please describe your creative process/practice:
Most of my work is created using the throwing technique,
primarily with porcelain. Once I throw the body with the wheel, all other details are made by hand.
I am a member of Fireworks Clay Studio.

When I was in the master course, my tutor told me “you are way too polite and it can be seen through your work as well. Try to destroy yourself.” That was the starting point that I made about my personality.
