Misun Won has used the circle to develop a variety of complex forms in silver to make a subtle and varied collection of objects, based on the idea of Korean patchwork. Using a 'patchwork' of circles, she makes rhythmical structures and patterns from one sheet of silver, creating complex forms on their own or in combination with other materials such as colour thread and silk cord.
