A droplet-shaped ceramic installation emphasizing contemporary interpretation of celadon color.

This work is a reinterpretation of celadon color in a contemporary fashion through its exploration of glaze, departing from the preexisting practice that puts emphasis on form or technique. It lays stress on glaze as matter, not merely as a finishing material. The form of a water drop chosen to stress the effects of glaze tends to maximize the aesthetic effect through the color contrast of glazes flowing from the top to the bottom and helps to shatter any dichotomous distinction between the form and matter. This endeavor is an attempt to deconstruct the boundaries between tradition and modernity, form and matter, and nature and non-nature.
