Chinese Bond
unfired ceramic clay | 23.5 x 20 x 3.2 in |  2020

Combining a symbol of Chinese culture that is used both in Taiwan and China with a material that has significance in both countries, The Chinese Bond shows the shared Chinese cultureu between the two nations while exposing the act of construction and the fragility of this bond.
The relationship between the two regions weaves in and out throughout history. While creating the resemblance of a unified form of a string, the repetition of breaking and fixing of clay becomes the “memory” of the piece — adding tension and uncertainty before being fired.
