Tu Joues

my friend Ju Kim has a bag store where he makes these beautiful bags from the fabric of old han-boks (traditional Korean clothes). he asked me to create a hanging half-wall partition in his store for him and so i was honored.

his bags are a contemporary reincarnation of traditional fabrics so i wanted to create something that would work well for his store. his only request was there was a flower motif.

i used a traditional celadon glaze (a special recipe that i learned from a local ceramic artist) and was able to find an old Nepalese wood block with, yes, my flower motif (thanks Maia).

the result

he also enjoys the nice sounds that they create when a gentle breeze enters the shop.

joe, i really like your wall hanging/wind chimes...very clean and stylish.

it's too bad that korea lost to switzerland, but now you can jump on the brasilian bandwagon!
