Designed and made in Australia by studiokyss, this paperweight is created using IBSA—a traditional Korean metal-craft technique. Using a chisel and a chasing hammer to create narrowly spaced indentations across the entire surface of the object in horizontal and diagonal directions, the surface becomes similar to woven or intertwined fabric. Gold and/or odong (95% copper, 5% gold) thread is then inlaid into the indentations created by the chisel.
