This handmade mug is a part of her Cheonghwa collection, inspired by traditional Korean ceramics, Cheonghwa Baekja (청화백자), which were initially produced in the late Joseon Dynasty (1800-1900).

Kyunglan often incorporates elements from Korean folk paintings, known as Minhwa(민화), imparting visual elements such as traditional fruit bowls, flowers, and animals.
