Name & Concept of Artwork 作品名稱與設計理念
Concept of artwork 設計理念:
Choosing to not replicate the objects realistically, I shaped the utensils in my memory based on my impression. I kept a lot of textures made, finger marks or traces of throwing on these ceramic utensils. Most of these utensils were made of wood. I used ceramic as a medium for transformation, with the immortal characteristics of ceramics as a gift to the Universe, to record these artifacts that are about to disappear in human civilization.
At the beginning of the Universe, life emerged, and human beings began to create things. The emergence of ceramics originated from the demand for life, and produced a variety of daily utensils and functional wares. However, with the change of the times and the rapid production of industrial products, many functional wares began to be replaced and faded away in life. Coming from a family background with mainly the production of medicinal ingredients, there are many special utensils for the production of medicinal materials placed in my family home. They have their own value and history, but have gradually become unknown over time.
