About Kyosun Jung
Kyosun completed BA Hons Silversmithing, Goldsmithing & Jewellery at University for the Creative Arts in Rochester in 2014. She has been based in London at The Goldsmiths’ Centre since 2013, designing and making a wide range of contemporary silverware, jewellery and art medals. She regularly takes on commissions of all sizes and has exhibited internationally.
Kyosun has a reputation for contemporary silver that fuses simple forms with expressive decoration that provides high visual impact and widespread appeal. She has work included in the permanent collections of the V&A Museum, The British Museum, The Goldsmiths’ Company and The Worshipful Company of Gold and Silver Wyre Drawers.
Kyosun’s technique involves pre forming by hand the wires, and soldering each wire individually. This is a time consuming and difficult technique but when done well the result looks fantastic. This is followed by deploying a hand cut engraving technique to provide linear qualities to the overall visual statement.
The visual qualities of Kyosun’s enamel pieces are achieved through her use and exploration of engine turned engraved patterns. These are overlaid with transparent enamels to create the colourful sunrise, sunset, starry night and northern lights vases. The experimental nature and combination of traditional craft techniques has given her licence to take an innovative approach, resulting in contemporary and conceptual designs that have striking aesthetics that give pleasure, intrigue and delight.
