Found porcelain teapot, Porcelain and colbalt carbonate (placed in a shop in Vancouver’s historic Chinatown) 8” x 14.5” x 9”
My exhibition speaks about the history of Chinese ceramics. Yet, it also speaks to many people now about breaking out of stereotypes and overlooking the handmade as commodities. I believe my work pushes the boundaries of tradition and brings it into the modern world allowing a broad range of people to access this rich history as well as to experience what it is like to live in such a diverse city. By using the imagery of the dragon and the teapot, they become vessels into two different worlds.
