Box with crackle design

Sohn Daehyun Korean

Not on view

Sohn finds inspiration in the colors of late Joseon red and orange lacquerware. The geometric pattern the artist created with the inlaid mother-of-pearl references cracking techniques found in earlier celadon wares, yet the work’s design and execution leave no doubt that this is contemporary work.
