Korean Esthetics, In A Few Lines And Colors
Whenever I travel, I take photos of objects that, in my mind, resume best the country’s culture.
If I had to resume Korea with a few objects, here would be my selection: Wooden cookie molds celebrating animals and flowers, mulberry paper in Korean’s color palette, rolls of calligraphy painting and a ceramic tea service.
I really love the lines, colors and texture of these objects. All are simple, elegant, with just the right touch of color. The perfect balance of materials, which I find is the essence of Korean esthetics.
Do you have any other objects to add?
