Feast of K-Chopsticks: Korean Craft and Design -  - Sydney - NSW
Feast your eyes on Korean craft and design! Spanning relics, artifacts and handicrafts, Feast of K-Chopsticks showcases a wide variety of artistic chopsticks related to local craftsmanship in Korea. Chopsticks are widely used across East Asia, and are commonly used by around 30 per cent of the global population. Although the shape of the sticks differs from country to country, one thing remains constant: they are comprised of 2 identical sticks. The factor that most influences the design of the chopsticks is local cuisine and local cooking traditions. Recent chopstick designs make you want to hold them. When holding chopsticks of various shades and colours, the hand becomes part of the design. From earthy designs using materials found in nature, to use of eco-friendly non-toxic materials, such as silicon and corn, chopsticks continue to evolve. This exhibition is made possible with the support of Cheongju City, South Korea.
