Bongsang Cho

A South Korean metalsmith based in the United States, Bongsang Cho combines traditional techniques with new technology to create innovative work. Strong and textural, his pieces display the contrast between structural forms and the natural beauty of material. Early influences from Korean art and design resonate in his work, into which he incorporates techniques and aesthetics learned from US artists. He explains his artistic philosophy by observing: “Freely experimenting with traditional materials allows me to express a new vision. By juxtaposing traditional smithing with advanced laser welding, I connect the past and present, build intriguing designs, and exceed the limitations of convention.”
