Keeryong Choi 

born in 1976


Keeryong Choi completed his Master of Design at Edinburgh College of Art and in 2010, continued to embark on a PhD in architectural glass. He has exhibited widely across the UK. His interest lies in studying similarities and differences between cultural groups to understand different aesthetic perceptions based on visual experiences, particularly in relation to unfamiliar materials and surface imagery.

Keeryong continues to explore how the ambiguity of an individual’s cultural interpretation can help to create the state of ‘uncanni-ness’ in visual experiences. He believes that this ‘uncanni-ness’ provokes emotions and feelings. Developing inlaid coloring techniques inspired by the ancient Korean “sanggam” applied to celadon making, ambiguity in delineating geometric patterns and counterfeit letters onto glass is attempted.

Keeryong’s work is in the collection of the Ruskin Glass Centre, City of Edinburgh Council (Museums and Galleries Edinburgh), National Museum of Scotland, The National Glass Centre, The Oriental Museum, UK; Imagine Museum, Corning Museum of Glass, USA. He was selected as the Loewe Foundation Craft Prize Finalist 2023.
