Artist Demo: Mother-of-Pearl Lacquerware from Korea
To bring to life the exhibition Mother-of-Pearl Lacquerware from Korea, contemporary artist Kwangwoo Bae will demonstrate the intricacy of inlaying mother-of-pearl and the process of lacquering wood. One of the few contemporary Korean artists who bases his work on traditional practices, Kwangwoo Bae recently reproduced Korea’s Goryeo dynasty mother-of-pearl lacquerware that was once called “the best under heaven” by a renowned Chinese writer during the Song dynasty.
