Abstract [en]

Abstract.

In the worldview of a traditionally Eastern cultural context, consciousness and matter are intertwined. 

In that context  negative and positive spaces relate to each other. With that in mind, the vessel is an interesting object to work with.

In my master work I explore "Thinking- through- making", a process where making and thinking alternate back and forth, in iterations. The making or designing can be taking place intuitively. 

Scaling down the vessel, to the point where it has no contemporary practical function, 

as a way of talking about the exercise of sensitivity, in a fast, loud and insatiable present.

Questioning the prevailing value system.

By re:learning to become more sensitive, empathy for different types of existence becomes possible, and togetherness between human beings and their companion species opens up.

By making (diminutive) stoneware vessels, I enter a long tradition of the time-consuming, hand-building technique of Yixing clay. And hence, contrasts with the technology and scale of contemporary mass production. 

Perhaps my vessels are pots to plant seeds for the hope of a future human existence?

Or, maybe they are vessels for tears, over human existence?

At least they are parts of bedrock coming back together from dissolution, for union.
