Misun Won

Misun Won graduated with a masters degree in 2008 from Edinburgh College of Art. Originally from Korea, her work is associated with the delicacy of highly refined handcraft in the East.  Her extensive experience of living and working in both Britain and Korea has given her a broader cultural outlook. It has enabled her to position herself in what she calls “neutral territory” and to examine both cultures with “fresh eyes”. Influences from both countries can be seen in her work: a major inspiration is Korean patchwork, but this highly traditional form is interpreted through Western fractal geometry. She wants to associate the beauty of rhythmical, playful structures from Jogakbo within her jewellery. Her in-depth study of fractal geometry and Jogakbo helps her to create dynamic structures for her collection.
