Self-portrait: Earth Snake

  • Self Portrait: Earth Snake
    Porcelain
    Handbuilt, saggar-fired in cone 10 reduction
    2014

    In this piece, I portray myself in the form of snake bones with porcelain, a material also known as china. This imagery is inspired by the thought of my Chinese Zodiac animal, an earth snake. This piece is my musing about the corporeal or incorporeal heritage of being a Chinese descent born and living outside of China.
