Yupsa #1

The Ipsa technique used to be called Yupsa by the old Korean masters. This word evokes an image in movement : leaves falling from a tree and being carried away by the river flow. In the Yupsa series, the threads are inlaid then used to become part of the hook that fixes the jewel onto a piece of clothing.
