inseparable relationship

Conventional porcelain which is exquisitely decorated and the way they are displayed give a sense that they are fragile and not to be touched. Using wood gives a sense of warmth that is just right to balance the contrast with the porcelain. The idea of using wood in displaying porcelain in traditional Chinese ceramics is solely for auxiliary purpose. To increase the whole aesthetic value to the piece, it is important to enhance the relationship between these two materials. In my work the curved bottom of the object cannot stand by itself and the shelf is only an empty shelf without any meaning if the object did not exist.

To give the wooden shelves a final touch, I laser etched my Chinese name onto them on which the decorated objects would be placed.
