The Sweeeeet Tableware Set would certainly be best appreciated on those occasions when you're so hungry that you could literally eat the dishes. Once you've devoured your serving of delicious Korean desserts, you could actually begin to munch on the very bowl that held it.
Jiwon Choi and Alice Jung collaborated on this set for the Seoul Utopia Project, turning "Grandma's favorite candy" into a collection of delectable crockery. Made with the same recipe as the long-beloved treats, this series celebrates the careful processes behind the complex cooking method by giving these pieces extended life cycles. Made from ginger and rice or barley, the white and brown dishes of the Sweeeeet Tableware Set can be appreciated for their organic beauty, their painstaking creation and finally for their saccharine scrumptiousness.
