Whether it’s glittering universe glazes or darling animal-inspired topping designs, it’s clear that donuts make a ideal made board for food-inspired artists around a world. Influenced by his time spent vital in a United States, South Korean ceramicist Jae Yong Kim creates tasty donut designs desirous by cocktail enlightenment and famous artworks. They might demeanour good adequate to eat, though are for arrangement only. The picturesque pastries are indeed hand-sculpted from clay, embellished and glazed, and mostly ornate with shine and Swarovski crystals.
References to complicated art has been a continual thesis for Kim, who has hand-sculpted hundreds of ceramic donuts glassy in brightly colored patterns. From Roy Lichtenstein-esque polka dots, to Jackson Pollock-inspired splattered paint and swirls, Kim views any donut as a “small painting.” Each square can take days to create, with a glazing routine requiring 3 or 4 firings in a kiln to grasp a silken finish. Kim’s donuts have been exhibited in galleries and art fairs all over a world, such as Art Miami, where he presented Homage to Kusama—a collection of donuts flashy in Yayoi Kusama’s iconic yellow and black patterns.
