Name & Concept of Artwork 作品名稱與設計理念
Concept of artwork 設計理念:
By using the phenomenon of porcelain shrinking during firing I created lamps. I wanted to use the movable cylinders to create different lights and atmospheres: Due to lifting the outer cylinder you can twist it. Therefore you can change the brightness of the room by playing with the diverse light dots. The characteristic quality of porcelain translucency; was also interesting when it came to the matter of light.

Porcelain shrinks 14% during firing. To symbolize the process porcelain undergoes to its final appearance I created little ʻcagesʼ. This is done by firing the inner and smaller cylinder twice and then putting it into the larger once fired cylinder. Finally I fired both cylinders together, so that the outer cylinder shrank and the inner one would be encapsulated. Both bodies are movable and due to the openings you can create different peep holes. Moreover the observer is encouraged to solve the mystery of how the two things got into each other.
