This work was a reference to the house that I lived in, 'cube stacked high into the air' - the HDB flats.
The cubes were slip cast and altered, stain coloured, glazed and Raku fired; their materials were stoneware bone china, a bit of wood and felt.
Just like Rojak, our local favourite food, I preferred to use a variety of techniques and materials in my art because of a consciousness to our multifaceted nation.
I enjoyed experimenting with the different techniques, stacking and balancing the precarious cubes, finally presenting the work as a search for identity through all these processes.
