Wonki and J Ceramics

Meet Jaeha Lee & Wonki Kim, artisans in Melbourne’s north, crafting functional ceramics for your daily life.

Utilising locally sourced materials, they blend simplicity with practicality in their designs. Their signature style involves rough stoneware clay, adorned with white slip using the Dumbung technique, resulting in mesmerising contrasts and tonal shifts. Infused with pigments from Victoria’s wild clay, our pieces offer a contemporary take on tradition, drawing from Australian landscapes and Korean heritage for perpetual inspiration.
