Designer Sang Won Sung has an incredibly unique approach to creating his pop dolls. Instead of simply using one material, Sung scrounges around different environments in order to find everyday materials so he can combine them with plastic to form the dolls.

According to Sung he uses, "plastic containers, parts of toys, doll’s arms and legs, screws… all sorts of things surrounding us in our modern daily life are what I need to make my figures." The idea is to get objects that are connected to our intimate environments so that the dolls are more than just combined materials; they have stories that are formed by each piece.

Sang Won Sung's pop dolls are both a clever use of materials and an inspiration for his artistic process.
