PAPER , ASSEMBLAGE & JOOMCHI
Joomchi is a unique Korean traditional way of felting mulberry (Hanji) paper by using water and eager hands. The terminology originated from the meaning, “making a Joomoney (Pouch)”. Records say that Koreans started making Joomchi in Goryeo Dynasty, A.D.918 – 1392. There are a few remaining Korean treasures made with this technique: purses, folding pouches, outfits for rain, etc. Joomchi creates strong, textural and painterly surfaces by layering and agitating Hanji (Korean mulberry papers.) Joomchi is not easy to rip/tear and creates elegant looking surfaces.
