Title: Artistic Stratum
Material: Porcelain slip, Cobalt, 1000 sheets of tissue paper
Dimensions: 10x18x18cm (Box shape)
Year 2014

My practice explores the remarkable ability of ceramics to deceive the eye. By using tissue paper and clay slip, I can make various materials looks like paper, wood and stratum but it is definitely ceramics after firing. These effects meet with simple shapes and structures, contrasting with the straight porcelain. My practice asks us to think what is real? At the same time, you experience another deception ‘how was it made?’ I always enjoy the audience’s reaction to my work.
