I frequently visit Bukchon and Seochon for the peaceful atmosphere. Today, I'd like to tell you about a spot in Gye-dong, close to Anguk Station. (Recently relocated to Seochon area)
Not a huge space, but bright and filled with natural wood and handiwork.
Shiny and attractive, ceramic goods reflect the sunlight. My primary motivation for visiting the <ilsangyeoback> was to check out new pieces by a familiar artist and potentially make a purchase.
He is a woodcarver, and his signature leaf tray is a beautiful example of his work. I went to check out the spoon-like ginkgo leaf tray, but it turned out to be much larger than I had anticipated.
Amazingly beautiful basket of fruit.
Take a look at the Bojagi's (traditional Korean wrapping cloth) knot. It's a piece of art.
The tea strainers are much like home decor.
Groundcherry makes it feel more authentically Korean.
I don't understand why I'm so drawn to Grandma’s taste these days. For whatever reason, I get a sense of sophistication and peace from these.
Forsythia flowers have appeared in <ilsangyeoback>.
Works of huge, white ceramics
One other unique feature that attracted my eye was the display cases. The lights adjacent to it added a wonderful touch.
How much care was taken with the lighting? The fabric-wrapped, minimalist ceiling lights were a particular highlight.
Traditional and cozy in every corner.
Isn't this tableware set really gorgeous?
I found a lot of items that I wanted to buy at <ilsangyeoback>. The aesthetics of Korean products are what I find most appealing.
Check out Gye-dong if you're in the area of Changdeokgung Palace and Anguk-dong. The alley is perfect for a stroll because of its peaceful atmosphere.
