I used traditional Korean flowers as an inspiration to create variations of designs. The project began with research of unique aspects of flowers. It led me to the prominent references to flowers in Korean literature (poems, novels, and essays). I was interested in the ways different flowers represented various symbols in the ancient literature; and, most of all, I was fascinated with the differences between the ancient and contemporary symbolism of flowers.
