Designers Sungho Cho

Metalwork holding the memories of time in a thin cast piece.

Starting from the question “Is it possible to bring about thin, light casting?”, Sungho Cho overcomes the limitations of casting through developing his own casting technique. He created a 0.8 mm-thick objects capturing surface textures of historic symbols like the Berlin Wall and natural objects with variety of texturing techniques, such as stamping and drawing. Not only his sensuous experience but also his memory of time filters into such thin castings using wax that becomes softened by body temperature.
