From South Korea, Myung Urso is an artist, curator and art director. Urso has a unique approach to jewelry-making by manipulating wire, fiber, ink and stitching in creating one of a kind pieces. Urso is fascinated by tactile forms and manipulating fiber into various creations. “Fiber is the most familiar material to me. If I have to make something with my hands, then there is no option, there should be fiber in it.” Though she draws indirect influence from Asian culture, with Korea having a particularly rich paper and fiber tradition, Urso also relies on her own creativity and ability to put different ideas and materials together.
