Korean Paper weaving

Jiseung is the Korean art of paper weaving.  Again, I have All Things Paper to thank for the post that introduced me to this incredible art.  The artists first spin paper into chords and then use it to create baskets which are then water-proofed with rice paste.

“Just how waterproof?” you ask.  Water-proof to the point that they make chamber pots out of it.  Seriously!

Here is a video of master weaver Na Seo Hwan at work.

Awesome and amazing!
