I create wearable objects inspired by the relationship between humans and nature, drawing from the optical illusions of natural formations, cellular structures, and viruses as well as and colorful visuals of electron microscopy.

In the studio, my work focuses on the exploration of and experimentation with materials, specifically in terms of their physical qualities and their possible combinations. I transform hot glue into three dimensional forms and dye the resulting forms. In addition to hot glue, I use found plastics, paper, wood, metal, and fabric to create assemblages that function as art jewelry. The often unexpected results lead to new discoveries. - Jung Eun Chang

Sena Gu completed her MA at The Royal college of Art in ceramics and glass. Her philosophy and aim is to highlight everyday objects by stimulating emotional connection between them and their users. She does this so well by playing with traditional forms and adding an unexpected and often organic element to them that create a talking point to those that come into contact with them. Exquisitely made in ceramic and beautiful to the eye.

genetic building block series-grey segment, 10.75"h x 11"w x 10.5"d, 2012

Jiyong Lee’s segmentation series is inspired by his fascination with cell division and the journey of growth that starts from a single cell and goes through a million divisions to become a life. He works with glass that has transparency and translucency, two qualities that serve as perfect metaphors for what is known and unknown about life science. The segmented, geometrical forms of his work represent cells, ova, and seed—each symbolizing the building blocks of life as well as the starting point of life. The uniquely refined translucent glass surfaces suggest the mysterious qualities of cells and, on a larger scale, the cloudiness of our futures. Lee’s segmentation series is quiet, yet powerful. He transforms solid glass using cutting, lamination, carving, and surface refining processes to make art that is both beautiful and deeply invested with meaning.
