Oil Lamp_Horong 1~20
Horong is a Korean traditional oil lamp used to produce light using an oil-
based fuel source before the use of candles and electric lights.
It was definitely important on daily life in the past by
lightening the space and keeping people safe from darkness.
This is the first point where my inspiration and imagination have emerged.

*How to best use/Care for the Oil Lamps
1. Choose the proper fuel - paraffin oil
2. Maintain proper levels- 4/3full
3. Get the wick wet before you light a lamp
4. Make the oil wick as short as possible. The extended wick can cause smoke and soot.
If you see smoke or soot, lower the wick until it stops.
5 . Be careful not to spill the oil container.
6. Take care during refueling
7. Protect children and pets
Blended Glaze oil lamp
Representative of the inspiration
The second point of my work is based on my faith that every art piece should be one of a kind holding artist’s differ
ent inspiration. The second type of the oil lamp is focused on the natural flow and blend of the colored glaze
meltd at high temperatures. The key to success of this work is understanding the ceramic glaze firing and predicting
how a particular glaze reacts to the work process since the application of a glaze has a direct effect on the result.
That's why this work can be most anything, also, it can be the only thing that represents the artist’s soul.
