The jewellery and silversmithing exhibition at the KCC is soon coming to an end, to make way for a fashion-related exhibition. Go along before it’s too late…
Go along for the wonderful vessels of Kyosun Jung, whose use of silver wire in the decoration make the finished product look like the product of Moorcroft potteries:
Go to see the stunning recreations of Joseon dynasty ceramics in silver by William Lee. Some rather lovely jewellery pieces too, including some made of green gold.
Go for the intricate pojagi-inspired jewellery of Misun Won. It’s amazing what can be done with a single sheet of silver. I love the new silver bowls too.
Go for the organised, geometric shapes of Heeyoung Kim. They might even inspire me to be tidy. I love the way some of the pieces have moving parts.
Go for the weird hybrid creatures of Min Yoo. The strangest things you’ve ever seen outside your nightmares.
Or go for the interesting investigation of what is “fake” by Yunsun Jang – or her appealingly creative silver corkscrews.
The show closes on 10 January 2015. Catch it while you can.
