I designed the following piece in 2014, but I knew I had to put in a couple more hours in the studio before I would be able to make it. In the meantime, I made a little card mock-up to see if it would work and to wrap my head around how exactly to make it. (The model also helped to show the instructor exactly what I wanted to make, seeing as I don’t speak any Korean.)
Making the actual thing took longer than I expected (about 5 hours), and at times the process of making it really tested my patience. I’m pretty proud of myself for actually making it – and not giving up on the idea. This is the final piece:
Stag. (Yellow Jade and Silver.)
From a different angle.
