Glass (Hot formed)


ART FORM :

 Glass / Ceramics

THEME OF DESIGN :

 Personal Feeling


SUMMARY :

The hot-formed Self series presents the essence of self in a Chinese character. The shape is based on the Chinese Character of Self 自. The element of the form is abstracted from the calligraphy strokes. The glass is sculpted. The bubbles inside the work indicate the space between the line and the breath – the qi/energy needed for writing and making. The bubble also creates the inner space, the reflection of one-self and the other-self who is looking at the work. Two bubbles in the base of the work is ‘Almost Self’, and four bubbles in the base of the work is ‘More Than Self’ – because three bubbles represent the three spaces between lines in the Chinese Character of Self自.
