Back in the US... remembering all of the incredible artists I met on this trip, including master weaver and painter @jigmulnori. She and her friend invited me into her hanok studio for tea, where she showed me her collection of cotton and wool weavings done on custom-built looms (swoon). I especially loved the delicacy of her one-of-a-kind pieces, including these peony and lotus blossoms which she hand-painted on silk. She offers intro workshops in her Bukchon studio for anyone who is interested in textiles! Thank you for sharing your talent ✨
Braided mugwort, raindrops on lotus leaves, hand-sewn silk hanbok, fresh peaches, rows of hangari (clay jars) full of sauces and vinegars... all details from an afternoon spent exploring my mom’s childhood home.
