나는 가우디의 늘어진 체인 모델과 비슷한 현수선 모양의 아치 형태가 되도록 포슬린으로 만들어 유약을 입힌 사슬들을 가마 안에 걸어 소성한다. 유약이 녹으면서 포슬린 사슬들이 융합되어 하나의 견고한 자립구조물이 생기면 바로 이 구조물을 뒤집는다. 나의 목표는 다양한 색들과 유약을 실험하면서 이 조형물의 규모와 복잡성을 확장시키는 것이다.

I hang glazed porcelain chains in the kiln so that they form catenary arches similar to Gaudi’s hanging models. The glaze melts and fuses the chain-links together into a rigid self-supporting structure that is then flipped right side up. My goal is to continue to expand the scale and complexity of this body of work while experimenting with a variety of colors and glaze phenomena.
