Choi Keeryong

South Korean Scotland based glass artist/educator. Based on my personal experience of growing up in the East and living and working in the West, my interests have been drawn from questions concerning the notion of invented cultural authenticity, historical, and symbolic meanings constructed around objects and how it is appreciated in different cultures.
