TEMPERATURES is an occasional publication about artists using clay.
VOLUME 2Vol. 2 features the work of artist and designer Kyong Kim. This issue showcases Assembly, an ongoing, generative body of sculptural ceramic vessels that Kim began in 2017. Derived from modular pipe forms, works from this slip-cast series are defined by their uniquely carved, colorful surfaces and their utilitarian ambiguity. Letterforms associated with this series were used as prompts to which a dozen writers responded. Contributions by Erik Benjamins, Marian Bull, Wade Cotton, Xiaoxi Chen, Matt Galler, Julie Moon, Kim Park, Nick Parker, Nat Pyper, JiEun Rim, Paul Ruppert, Julia Sanches, and Andrew Steinmetz are printed throughout the issue. Eunjoo Hong and Hyungjae Kim contributed illustrations.

Vol. 1 is a collaboration between Julie Goll and Vanessa Kwan. For over a year, Goll lived in the home of deceased ceramicist Eva Moshack. Her resulting body of written and sculptural work is in TEMPERATURES for the first time. Kwan responds in a parallel essay on intergenerational relationships, ghosts, and the paranormal.
