Through these project, I challenge the limits of clay. The reason why clay is unpredictable is that it shrinks and deforms whilst vitrifying in the kiln, my aim is to understand and work with this phenomenon towards precision. This series of stackable porcelain tableware is inspired by the forms of pagoda, architecture which holds spiritual sanitary for Buddhists. According to Buddhism changeability is one of the perennial principles of nature. In my project the form of a pagoda is expressed by stacking thrown porcelain which echoes the silhouette of Buddhist temples. I also used soft fading glazes to create the gradual change of colour to emphasise the feeling of the sky as light and dark transfer through the rotation of the earth to illustrate that there are only ever-changing, ever-moving processes.
