Korean Handicrafts : Arts in Everyday Life. by Team, Seoul Selection Editorial.;
Since time immemorial, Korea has developed an outstanding craft culture. Its superior quality can be seen in everything from the beautiful and elaborate golden crowns of the Three Kingdoms era (57 B.C.-A.D. 668) to the astonishing scientific technology of the Unified Silla era's Seokguram Grotto. Even China, the birthplace of celadon, was bewitched by the magical jade greens found in the celadon of Goryeo. Simple yet sophisticated handicrafts handed down from the Joseon era continue to enjoy great popularity today among Koreans and people around the world.This book was written as an introduction to Korean handicrafts and the manner in which they have captured Korea's unique culture and way of life over the millennia. Its chapters examine the characteristics of these works as well as their history-the most representative pieces handed down from the past, along with the lives of the people who make them.Description based on publisher supplied metadata and other sources.Electronic reproduction.

Section one, "Artists and Ideas," explores sources of inspiration, the foundational importance of drawing, and a variety of functions for sketchbooks and journals. Section two, "Art Practice," considers contextual referencing in art, the development of ideas, artistic materials and techniques, the relative merits of criticism, and the synergy between artist, environment, and tools. And section three, "Art at Work," addresses making a living from doing art and the relevance and value of art in public spaces.11 & up.Mode of access: Internet.System requirements: FOD playback platform.Title from distributor's description.
