Knitted vessel series, it was an on-going exploration of form, paper, porcelain and slip casting. It was a combination of multiple methods and processes where first rice papers were cut and twisted into cords then they were meticulously crochet into shapes. The paper crochet shapes were then dipped into porcelain slips to form a slip cast on the paper crochet. Finally the work is put in a kiln where the paper is fired away to produce the porcelain form.
These new vessels series with pleats takes more reference from nature, they were more organic and resemble flower pods. The new works were also a transition from the older series of vessels forms.
