“All my works are focused on two keywords: holes and airflow. I believe a hole itself has as much shape-meaning as a solid mass. I use holes as the extension of the surface and enter into a dialogue with the material to discover something new: space. Also, I’m working with holes to represent airflow. In Chinese, we use “qì” to describe air. This multiple-meaning character also symbolizes breath, material energy, and energy flow. I’d like to let my works express those energies—not only in a kiln, but also when displayed in a physical exhibition space.

The hand-held clay extruder is a very important tool of my recent art practice. I found it’s almost the best tool explaining the ideas of holes and airflow at the same time. When I press the clay into the extruder, the reaction of clay shows me how strong it is; the air bubbles in the clay always pop and make holes in the sculpture. Therefore, I combine the methods of extruding and coiling to create ceramic sculptures.”
