3. Behind the scenes
Sometimes the still lifes go through several “drafts” before their final form. Here are several of the iterations in the process of making Onggi with Six Kimchi. The first version of the piece used flowers that I felt were too colorful and distracted from the kimchi. In the second version, I chose flowers that would complement and enhance the visceralness of the kimchi flowers dripping their juices down the bouquet.
