Most of Sumi’s creations don’t appear to have a purpose, seeming to be nothing more than useless decorations, but you can really feel not only a sense of playfulness but also a smart, critical edge from these beautiful pieces. Alongside the works are comments from Sumi explaining the creative process to make for a fascinating and beautiful collection.
