Gyeol literally translates as rippling undulation in a textural sense is the definition that best describes the formative language in glass expressed by SOHA Jeong Kyoung Mee.

The word Gyeol is a pure Korean word that defines textural undulation or wave found in wood or stone It signifies accumulation of layers, symbolizing the flow of time.These create textural effects and we refer to them as a wave of breath, a flow of the heart, an unintentional mind, a dream vibration, a water ripple, an undulation on wood, a smooth stone, a silky surface, a skin layer, a coincidence, a morning break, an afternoon ebb, an evening flow, a sleepy doze and much more. Unlike the English language in Korean Gyeol signifies many nuances. It also means ‘a path that flows by’ or ‘in between flows’ In other words, in the English language it is comparable to ‘while doing something’ or ‘in between situations’, all of which relates to time Jeong originally majored in management.
