Hello! I’m Angela Chvarak Jung, the creative behind Angela Chvarak Studio which was founded in Los Angeles in 2018. I design and make artful, vibrantly colored ceramic objects in my cozy home studio in Asheville, NC.
I’m a born and bred Southern lady with Korean roots, and I’m from Charleston, SC. I earned my BFA in studio art, concentrating in painting and ceramics. I also studied Korean ceramics while living in Seoul, South Korea. My continued studies in the arts led me to earn my MPA in arts management, and upon graduation I found myself moving across the country to run a commercial art gallery in LA.
My aesthetic choices are influenced by my roots and heritage as I grew up in a female-centric, Korean household with my mom and dad, sister, grandmother, and aunts. Having a strong women’s circle has been incredibly impactful throughout my life, and I also find inspiration through my love for the outdoors and the vibrant colors of our world.
When I’m not creating in the studio, you can find me hanging with my husband Nik and our two little, sweet girls Amelia and Sophie. Outside of family time, I work with some of the top galleries on the West Coast and throughout the US in my work as a Senior Account Executive with Artsy. I love walking with my family, running, hiking, camping, hot spring hopping, practicing yoga, reading spiritually-minded books, checking out astrological forecasts, and watching documentaries.
If you love your ceramic pieces, please share images of my work out in the wild and tag @angelachvarakstudio.
I hope the energies of love and the happiness I feel when making my art transmits to you. May my wares lighten up your home and heart!
