Becoming: Jane Yang D'Haene

17 Dec 2022 - 5 Feb 2023

Tayloe Piggott Gallery is pleased to present Becoming, a solo exhibition of work by Korean ceramicist Jane Yang D'Haene, on view December 17th, 2022 through January 29th, 2023. Jane Yang D’Haene works in stoneware, hand building vessels drawn upon her Korean heritage. Though descended from traditional ceramic forms, such as the dal hang-ari or Moon Jar, D’Haene’s vessels depart from this history as she experiments with surface, lending her work a sculptural quality. Diverging from the smooth white exterior of the original vessels, D’Haene employs a variety of glazes and techniques to create texture, movement and tonal shifts. In doing so, D’Haene creates planetary forms, mimicking the earth from which the clay itself is drawn.
