Description of work
Gangwon province, Hongcheon river, made FRP, and coloring on it was finished with 0.4mm rosary.
This work is opening a new horizon of Korean mother of pearl.
‘Cutting-up technique’ is to cut mother-of-pearl in slender strips and put them together to embody unintended pattern.
The curved surfaces of the “pebbles”are adorned in a soft and smooth manner reminding us of reeds swaying in the wind.
Of the Pebble Series, the thinthread colored mother-of-pearl “boulder” that is only 0.5mm thick took to complete, while the thickest one of 4.9 mm.The surfaces that had been lacquered were finished using classic mother-of-pearl techniques.
