Bonds, 2021

8 cm
This piece, ‘Bonds’, implements rake fired ceramics. ‘Bonds’ is my interpretation of my family, and the bonds that bind us together. Through contrasting tones of black and white, leading to each component having their own independent pattern, a sense of unity via difference was created. The installation is only complete with all six components; should one component be removed, the unity within the installation would be lost. I felt that I was important for my work to reflect the complex but simple nature of my family, who often inspire me. I found that rake firing allowed me to marry to opposing tones of black and white in a harmonious way, which I felt also reflected the ethnically diverse nature of my family, and the peaceful coexistence of two difference cultures.
