Gokkal Bowl

Heejoo Kim


The bowl is made of Korean traditional paper and Ottchil lacquer.

This bowl takes inspiration from the Korean ‘gokkal’ which means conical shape. The origin of the word is a cone-shaped paper hat used by monks for ceremonial dances, and almost everything in the shape of a cone is said to be gokkal in Korea. Each gokkal is light, rhythmic, papery, temporary and impermanent.
