Sanghoon Kim is a metal artist who uses silver to create bowls and vases. He is also the grand prize winner of the Silver Triennial in 2018 and the second prize winner at the 2018 Silver Smith Forum in Germany. He likens his work process, which consists of hammering for a long time, to travel. In his journey, he is accompanied by his own anvils, which are the result of the artist's own handiwork that feature "lines that rise from the plain", which can be called the formative feature of his work. The embossed lines create a free and repetitive pattern on the shining flat surface of silver, and these formative elements enable modern beauty to emerge even though his work is produced the traditional way.
