Intro
Myung Urso was born in South Korea and currently living and working in the USA as a contemporary jewelry artist. 
 

Statement

My approach to creating my artwork very much relies on my personal instinctual aesthetic. Asian calligraphy, which I have been practicing since a young age affects and leads my work to be more painterly and sculptural.


These recent jewelries' ("Elevation", "Plateau" series and "Scape") forms are a result of my travelling to the southern part of South Korea where the rocky landscapes and volcanic mountains left an impression on me.  Applying Asian ink and sewing techniques on fabric reflect my very first materials and techniques from when I first started making jewelry. After a decade of jewelry making experiences, I felt the need to look back to my first starting point as a way to begin my next decade.
