Meet The Maker:
As a unique Korean craft technique, Ottichil lacquering not only improves durability and functionality, but also adds an aesthetic touch with the resulting luxurious gloss and subtle colours. Lacquer adapts to the material and expresses itself through layers of colours. Ottchil is not a material that can be easily manipulated. Huh Myoung-Wook reflects that Ottchil is a product of temporality and a medium he uses to visualise the traces of time's unforgiving nature.
