MOON & CHICKENS
In Korean fairy tales, the moon is an object of imagination and longing, symbolizing fulfillment of wishes and a beautiful unknown world. The series of Moon and Chickens represents the curious and humorous chickens living on the moon where seemingly impossible things happen. The paintings of the Moon and Chickens ceramic objects allow the audience to freely imagine and create their own stories by looking at them from various angles.
The Moon and Chickens vases are living objects where you can enjoy humorous expressions and playful movements of the chickens. The vases are hand painted and come in a variety of sizes and forms, allowing you to place one or more of them together to make your space even more unique.
