Terlahir di Daegu, Kyungwon Baek lulus dari studi sarjana dan pascasarjana keramik di Seoul National University. Karya-karyanya banyak berupa patung yang memberdayakan bentuk dan tradisi wadah (vessel) keramik. Terinsiprasi dari peralatan mekanis dan rupa arsitektur, ia bekerja secara intuitif dengan membangun dari dasar. Dari yang seperti tapak cetak biru, bentuk-bentuk dibangun olehnya ke atas tanpa rencana dan tanpa pemikiran secara sadar. Melaluinya, ia menjelajah rasa dan stimuli, dengan juga bertemu dalam dialog dan tanggapan dari orang lain dalam prosesnya.

Ia memenangkan nominasi kehormatan di Cheongju International Craft Biennale 2011. Ia juga merupakan seniman residensi di Guldagergaard International Ceramic Research Center di Denmark pada 2014, dan di Gimhae Clayarch Museum, Korea Selatan, pada tahun 2015.

Born in Daegu, Kyungwon Baek graduated with BFA and MFA in ceramics from Seoul National University. Her vessel-sculpture works uses slabbing and coiling technique, which draws inspiration from architecture and mechanical devices. After drawing blueprints, coils are build on the slab to be formed intuitively, designed in advance to be worked upon without being thought. The process explores stimuli and a grasp of developing feel, especially through processes of dialogue with viewers and getting feedback.
