JOO HYUNG PARK

SOUTH KOREA

Joo Hyung Park was born and raised in Seoul, South Korea.

Still in South Korea, she completed a course in hotel management, only to discover her true passion for the material metal when encountering a friends’ metal work a few years later. Thereupon Joo Hyung made a life changing decision, to study abroad to the United States and accomplish an undergraduate degree in jewellery and metalsmithing at the Rhode Island School of Design. Upon her graduation she decided to move to London and pursue a higher education in goldsmithing, silversmithing, metalwork and jewellery at the Royal College of Art. After experiencing two painful but equally fulfilling years, she hopes to become an artist who does not forget her joy of making, holding, and feeling with her hands.

About her Confluence collection - "Carving wood takes a long time, and I cannot foresee how the wood will react to my carving. The natural pattern it already owned starts to dance slowly as I start to carve. The pattern flows on the wood, and the form I carve gets curvier wishing the pattern to be more alive. Perfectly carved wood gets two types of patterns. One is the pattern the wood and I created together, and the other is the color pattern created from the last process, applying lacquer, being imperfect. The two patterns meet on my work, and they interflow, coexist, and merge."
