Joo Hyung Park

Joo Hyung Park was born and raised in Seoul, South Korea. After studying jewelry and metalsmithing at Rhode Island School of Design and the Royal College of Art, London, she returned to Seoul, where she runs her own studio, specializing in metal, wood, and lacquer (urushi). Each piece of wood is unique, notes Park, and as she carves, two patterns emerge: “One is the pattern the wood and I created together, and the other is a color pattern created from peeling improvised layers of natural lacquer accumulated over the wood. The two patterns meet on my work, and they interflow, coexist, and merge.”
