画亭点金 (Painting Pavilion)
SAS | Earthenware , Low Fire Glaze, Wire, Pendants | 15 x 15 x 25 cm
This work explores how architecture could be expressed in clay forms, and to express part of my culture. The name of the piece 画(draw)亭(pavilion)点(paint)金(gold), is a modification of a Chinese proverb 画(draw)龙(dragon)点(paint)睛(eyes) that means to add a single touch that brings an artwork to life. The clay form is meant to be a chinese pavilion, and the gold embellishments serve as the “single touch” that makes the piece, and the pendants are meant to imitate lanterns in a figurative way.
