Youjin Um, Metal Craft Designer, Seoul, Korea.
I like the natural properties of cold metal materials, especially the clear and transparent colors of silver. The beginning of my work is to create drawings in advance and model them in paper to virtually grasp the real feeling. Then, after attaching drawings and leaving a mark on the silver plate, they begin to project. Through the way I pierce and express myself one by one, I feel healing, relief, and happiness in life.
