Symbol for a lifecycle
At the beginning of September my work ‘Wing Form’ was selected to be exhibited in the ‘2014 Nantong International Contemporary Craft Biennale’, which runs from October 24 to November 23, 2014. There is also a competition associated with this biennale and – to my great surprise! – the “Wing Forms” series was awarded a “Bronze Prize”. This was immediately my first international prize, and still in China, the cradle of porcelain.
Wing Form is a perfect example of mutual influence between human and material and how this interaction can lead to a creative result. In this case every bowl becomes unique by its wavy folds. Initially I wanted to create simple, hollow bowls, but the porcelain got ‘crumpled’ out of the cast.
