The artist believes people need to do what they love.
Seven years ago, artist Kim Suhui quit her career in construction management. Though she was an architect, she desperately wanted to create a design of her own and began woodworking as a hobby. Her father was a woodworker his whole life, and he makes both traditional furniture and objects and and had many fond memories of growing up watching her father work in his studio. Kim Suhui majored in design, and loves to think about decor – how to fill a space and make her surroundings beautiful, especially to transform a room energetically. To this day, she designs large-scale furniture like tables and chairs and her meditation on moon jars started quite recently in order to quiet her mind and makes her feel at ease. Unlike clay moon jars, once you make a mistake in wood, you can never recover. For the artist, wood teaches her to get over her mistakes quickly and move on. The artist believes people need to do what they love, and woodworking has given her with a joyful life that she can own. She’s changed the entire perspective on what happiness is and what she needs to be happy.
