Why Ottchil?

Ottchil (Lacquer) crafts require a complicated process, time, patience and devotion. The sap of lacquer is a natural paint that has long been used for valuable items due to its durability as well as waterproof, insect repellent, anti-inflammatory, and antiseptic. Eco-friendly lacquer with natural preservation adds beauty and practical value to objects, and is a material that can be used for life through proper care.

 

Artist Eunjin Jeong

She held solo exhibitions in 2010 and 2011 and participated in a number of group exhibitions such as '2017 Fashion of Craft' in Seoul, '2016 KOREA NOW!' in Munich, Germany.
