Image from tradition

from: Misik Kim

I have been teaching quilt at one university museum during several years.
So I can have a chance to see some old collections and nice exhibitions in that museum. 
I think it's a fortune for me and also gives me a relaxation in busy city life.

Every country has good old traditions and we can learn much from that traditions.
Recently some designs derived from old traditions are used in many products and have 
good effects.
So I selected subject of this work from old traditions, "image from tradition".
I wish it could be a good opportunity to see our old times.

  1. this one will be really enjoyable Misik, thanks!

  2. It is interesting to contemplate the traditions of my country and my family and see where they may lead. Thank you Misik!

  3. You have shown us beautiful, traditional Korean embroidery and bojagi, with modern interpretations. I think this will be an opportunity to experiment with reinterpretations. Already digging into my textile archives!

  4. This is going to be a really interesting challenge, Misik! Already, I find myself considering the possibilities - so many different ways to go. And I will learn some quilt history along the way!
