Esther Cho

Esther Cho received her dual BFA in Inte­rior Design and Craft/​Material Studies (with a concen­trat­ing in wood­work­ing) from the Virginia Common­wealth Univer­sity in 2017 and is expected to receive her MFA from the Univer­sity of Wiscon­sin – Madison in 2022. She employs a disci­pline in wood­work­ing and paper­mak­ing to seek a place where Korean and Western craft tradi­tions merge to commu­ni­cate the concepts of self-iden­ti­fi­ca­tion, cultural discon­nect, and the loss of lineage. She has been awarded the 2017 Windgate Fellow­ship Award and trav­eled to South Korea to study tradi­tional Korean paper­mak­ing tech­niques and its related arts.
