Four Elements Series - Fire Vase
Express the elements through the texture and color of the clay. Fire is rough and very coarse, symbolizing the heat and being burnt. Earth has a sand texture with a warm earth tone.
By using different materials, ways of firing and glazes to create simple but sophisticated pieces that express the four elements: Earth, Wind, Fire and Water. Which relate and communicate with each other, creating harmony when it's together but still a whole on its own. The pieces are to convey that each elements are an individual, like people; in a different state, different personalities that forms our world. We may congregate or stand alone, but we all communicate with each other in some ways.
The shape of the sphere represents the whole of a person with and opening to communicate with others. Become a whole within yourself, but still fits in, reminding us we are part of something like each of the elements. I would like you to feel the warmth when you see the "Fire" piece, like when you meet a vibrant person. Imagine the sound of water and picture the splash when you see the "Water" piece, etc...
Further using glazes to convey the different colors that each elements may be, triggering thoughts process and interact with the viewer, makes you want to touch the pieces.Size: 17cm(W) x 17cm(H) (measurements are approx.)
