Spoon series

On revisiting the functionality and hidden expressive possibility of the traditional Chinese ceramics wares, I have also tried to work with element of time and continuity in the "Spoon series", in which I attempt to stretch the spectrum of red hue found in the Chinese spoon classics "萬壽無疆” (a phrase that wishes people long life and with ‘boundless longevity’) into a gradation of red. I fired the spoons in different temperatures and uncover the line of spectrum of red glaze, fading from red to pale pink to transparent. In the other series of works I also try to play with the symbols of patterns used in traditional pottery and try to elaborate it into a playful sculptural forms.
