This cutlery rests with two different traditional Korean knots are one of the most popular pieces from the Korean ceramic artist Hayoon Kim’s most notable collection 'Maedeup'. Korean knots are symmetrical and three-dimensional. In order to preserve the authenticity of traditional Korean culture while adding a modern touch, she conducted extensive research at the National Museum of Korea for several months and reinterpreted traditional Korean knots in a contemporary style.
The Dorae knot is the most commonly used knot, named Doraebecause it looks like a baby turning its head.
The Yeonbong knot bears its name due to its resemblance to the bud of a lotus flower. In the Joseon dynasty, Yeonbong knots were weaved and worn to pray for prosperity, health, peace, and a good harvest of their offspring.
Handmaking such complex cutlery rest out of ceramics requires exquisite craftsmanship because of how easily the material could break when it is being trimmed. Still, Hayoon Kim never compromises quality. Thanks to her excellent sense of aesthetics and fine attention to detail, we can incorporate this piece of art into our daily lives. We guarantee a culturally rich dining experience when you use the matching bowl and cutlery together.
The set includes 4 cutlery rests in a gift box.
