Explored Change & Growth


A GROWING POINT SERIES


I, as observing cactus, explored change and growth, the theme of my work. Under waterless barren regions, cactuses have evolved from their leaves into a unique structure consisting of both regularly arranged growing points and sharp thorns. Having observed the structure, I derived two critical features of growth, regularity and adaptation.

I make my pieces with white porcelain and paper clay. To express regularity, I formed voluminous shapes by
connecting thin ceramic thorns from regularly arranged dots. Cactus thorns, a symbol of environmental adaptation, resembled the phenomenon that clay changes its properties under high temperatures.
I leaned line structures against kiln’s walls or props and made line structures bent and twisted by 

high temperatures in a kiln.
