This series is inspired from scenes of birds dangling grass in their beaks. It may be a strange and uncomfortable knowledge to learn that a component in Bone China Porcelain is bone ash from animals. However, by the nature of the material’s white translucency and allowing light to enter, it connotes life encircled by death. The bird-like forms embody the cycle of rebirth in both its materiality and function.
