The devotion starts from here – After many years of throwing and fail to become the ‘master thrower’, I find that either I give up ceramics and go back to painting or maybe there are other things to do in ceramics.
Therefore I started hand building boxes so that the flat surface will become canvas for painting. Then the question is what to paint? I associated the boxes to my living environment, the urban landscape and the search for an identity. After a considerable struggle to defy the warping of the walls in high firing, I had some success and results.
Since then, boxes, cubes, these right angle enclosed shape have been the chosen form to express myself. They have become an extension of me.
