STATEMENT: REMINISCENCE AND SPACE
I am drawn to objects such as shells, nests, and skins. They represent not only the existence of invisible life, but also the coexistence of life and death. They also imply the flow of time. I am fascinated by the sea urchin’s shell because of its pattern, texture and color. It has both fragility and strength. Each piece is wheelthrown so that I can be conscious creating the inner space. I use porcelain because it is the material which contains fragility and strength like sea urchin’s shell. I wonder why the shell keeps its beauty without decaying even after its flesh has disappeared. What does it hold in the empty space?
