The Seoul International Buddhism Expo has been hosting the 'Excellent Traditional Culture Product Exhibition'. We aim to discover excellent products related to Korean tradition and Buddhism, and to provide directions for the development of the Korean tradition and Buddhism industry by supporting writers, designers and companies interested in traditional and Buddhist cultures.
The theme of 'Excellent Traditional Culture Product Exhibition' of 'The Seoul International Buddhism Expo 2019 (7th Buddha Art Festival)' is the 'Meditation items'. The winners were determined by evaluating the value, quality, design, and price, etc.
Grand Prize : Calm and Slow's "The Moon Light" is a Hanji(Korean paper) lighting that was inspired by the tradition of hanging lanterns made of Korean paper on Buddha's day.
A lamp made by folding a Korean paper, produced with SuRok technique, which shows the moon becoming bigger and smaller as it is folded and unfolded. When you open the frames made of walnut wood, you will see a hemispherical lampshade like a pop-up book.
This is designed to compensate for the difficulties of storage and transportation, which were disadvantages of Hanji lighting, and is suitable for the theme of 'Meditation items' in the Excellent Traditional Culture Product Exhibition. In addition, the item received good reviews from all the judges in terms of practicality, craftsmanship and quality.
Golden Prize : The "Infant Romper (Toddler Clothes) Applied Hanbok Design" by GamRo Design. This work stands out for its traditional materials, the functionality of baby clothes, and the modern tradition.
The traditional JoGakBo patchwork technique was used as a design and applied manually to the collar of the garment. This infant romper is made in the form of a gown for easy wearing and removing. In addition, the traditional burlap material and JoGakBo patchwork design are applied to express Korean beauty well.
Silver Prize : This award was given to Yoo Jin-kyeng Wood Studio's "Scented Meditation" tea table. This has received excellent reviews in terms of quality and functionality. A tea table set designed to work with the minimum tools necessary for meditation. There are three sets of products: a tea table that can hold cups, tea, and tea stand, one incense stand, and one candle stand. It is made using traditional wood furniture making techniques, NakDong technique and weaving technique.
In addition, a total of 11 works were selected as Admitted Prize, including 8 small items such as Masterwork HanJi MaRu, Fine_XXi , Needle & Co, HaeIn Gallery, YeongCheon MokTak Craft Company, KinDiGo, Ot & Ot, and NeungIn HyangDang.
We look forward to the further development of the Korean Traditional Buddhism industry with your efforts to spread sustainable resources and Buddhist culture through the Korea Buddhism Expo.
I hope that the new artists will endeavor to develop a lot of interests in traditional Buddhist culture products and to continue to develop them, and as more people using it in everyday life, and it becomes an opportunity to practice and enjoy Buddhist culture.
