“This book is not only a sensitive portrayal of Chunghi Choo’s work and a vast overview of the Studio Craft Movement in the Midwest, it is also a tour de force of the technical aspect of Chunghi’s crafts, both textile and metal. Her textile work was a revelation and so important to the understanding of her oeuvre. The comparison and inclusion of the place of music in her art is astonishing!”

Carol Sauvion, Executive Director, Craft in America

Chunghi Choo (b. 1938 in South Korea) is a world-renowned metalsmith and jewellery artist who is best known for her works that incorporate such techniques as electroforming and electro-appliqué. Choo’s artwork is represented in major museums around the world, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art (US), the Victoria and Albert Museum (UK) and the Musée des arts décoratifs (FR). In addition, she is professor emeritus of the University of Iowa, where she established a metals programme, which she brought to international prominence during her more than thirty years of service. Many of her students have since become critically acclaimed artists in the fields of fine arts, jewellery, textiles, metalsmithing and sculpture. This volume reviews Choo’s remarkable career, showing selected pieces from the last six decades of extraordinary craftsmanship that earned her status as Elected Fellow of the American Craft Council. Works by thirty former students reveal Choo’s influence on a subsequent generation. With works by Leslie Hollis, Mary Merkel-Hess, Jon Ryan, Chieko Arai, Jacquelyn Chateauvert, Monica Correia, Meiing Hsu, Lonna Keller and Eun-Kyung Suh among others. With essays by Kate Bonansinga, Lois Jecklin, Jack Lenor Larson, Jane Milosch and Paul J. Smith.
