We’re proud to introduce a new work from the artist Choi Sungwoo that is equally sweet and equally an homage to nature as his Ginkgo Leaf Servers. The artist made these varying cloud plates as a meditation on the minutia. Every day consists of the sun and the moon, but the patterns filling in between are all different. The diversity of details is what inspired him to create his Cloud Plates. We think they would look great to serve tea or a small snack, or as a jewelry dish for a newlywed to place their rings.

Care: Cloud Plate 1 and 9 are not water-proof or food safe. All others are safe for food use and can be washed. Do not leave sitting in water. Wash with soap and dry thoroughly with a dish towel.

He thought to himself, “Ah, these ginkgo leaves feel how I feel today.”

After graduating from University as a mechanical engineer, Choi Sungwoo went into the corporate workforce to work at a large car company only to find himself incredibly unhappy. What did make him happy though, was woodworking. He dove head first into his obsession, and rented a small studio space in Seoul, where he would wake up at 4 am to woodwork before he went into the office. He would leave his house wearing his business suit, and when he arrived at his studio, put on head-to-toe coveralls to protect his clothes. He worked on his passion until 8 am when it was time to clock in. On a day the artist was feeling particularly defeated at work, he went outside to take a break. It was raining and the ground was covered in ginkgo leaves. They had been trampled, and the leaves were drenched, lifeless, and dirty. He thought to himself, “Ah, these ginkgo leaves feel how I feel today.” And with this understanding – a moment where nature and man acknowledge one another – the artist began to create his ginkgo leaf series. His woodworking hobby would soon become a path towards a career in woodworking and art.
