Ashley Kim Catalogue

A limited edition artists’ book/catalog produced to feature the work of ceramicist Ashley Kim. The handwritten words and drawings are taken from the artists’ notebooks were reproduced by silkscreen printing, and the drawings are interspersed with photographic images of the artists’ vessels.

The French-folded page format allowed for the punching of holes through the verso of the page in order to echo the inaccessible sacred spaces that are often found in the artists’ work.

Variations of the hole patterns are repeated throughout the book and create a meditative rhythm that unifies the book. This rhythm is a driving force in Kim’s work.

A clamshell box was made to house the book, which also uses the visual element of holes to connect the container to the contents.
