Name & Concept of Artwork 作品名稱與設計理念
Concept of artwork 設計理念:
White porcelain is an excellent material. It is natural, flexible, beautiful and solemn.Using the traditional techniques of Dehua, hundreds of clay tablets are molded to form a natural dynamic and order in the changing rhythm. This repetition reflects the rhythm of growth, the surging momentum of lamination and the continuous vitality."Repetition" is not only the internal law of all things in the universe, but also the simplification of human’s subconsciousness.This "repetition" not only pays attention to the rhythm of the whole, but also retains the details and individuality of each individual through the touch of the hand. The state and intention of the creation are recorded in this way. After burning at a high temperature of 1,370 degrees and being fixed by flame, it becomes white and flawless porcelain and sparkling glazed glass, which is affecting and mysterious.The driving force of crazy growth is the desire to break through the difficulties."Sailing a Boat in the Sea of Trees " is actually a kind of pursuit. We may see more when we change the human-centered perspective but understand ourselves, groups and times from a natural perspective.
The purpose of my work is to explore the form of white porcelain creations, after collecting and reviewing a large amount literature，with the white porcelain used as materials，and the theme of “leaves”, it makes a creative practice on the subject “sea of trees”. During the process of creation ,by processing traditional shaping technique originated from Dehua，with modern form and “nature” subject expression ,to describe that the pure and spotlessly-white sensuous materials ,liberal and romantic spiritual connotation of white porcelain .
