Artist: Lee Seok Do
Wenge Wood
Dimensions: 11.5L x 5W x 2H

Wenge wood is a tropical wood and is dark in with a distinct striped pattern. You might have seen wenge wood on a chessboard, but Lee Seok Do has taken this historically African wood and turned it into something distinctly Korean – a Jegi. Jegi is a plate shape normally used for ancestral rites called Jesa where the living pay respect to the departed. Finished with food-grade mineral oil, this piece can be used to serve food.

The product(s) you receive might vary slightly from the product picture due to the nature of your product(s) being 100% handmade. Any item you purchase is one of a kind. There are no two items that are exactly the same.

Care: Due to the nature of the material, please be careful of leaving the plate in sitting water, extreme temperature, or direct sunlight. When cleaning, wash them under running water with a soft sponge. Please store in a well-ventilated, shady area. Not microwave or dishwasher safe.

Woodworking has taught Lee Seok Do patience and, more importantly, how to let go of control.

Artist Lee Seok Do loves boxing. For him, boxing is like watching two partners dance, and likens that to his relationship with wood. Wood is his partner, and if he wants to be a good partner, as an artist, he needs to bend and be flexible. But, there are some days the wood won’t dance with him. It’s taught him to let go when it’s time to. He credits woodworking to not only being his dance partner, but with being his teacher as well. The medium has taught him patience and how to let go of control. It’s only within this medium that he can sit with laser focus and lose himself and quiet his mind.
