Artwork Statement
This artwork combines the beauty of nature and artistic creativity, presenting a fresh and innovative perspective distinct from the traditional form of ceramics. The pond within the piece represents the landscapes and vitality of nature, while the water droplet effect imbues the artwork with dynamic movement and depth. The glaze imparts a unique shine and transparency to the surface, evoking the appearance of actual water droplets on a pond. Through the meticulous application of the bubble underglaze technique, I have created mesmerizing natural effects in my artwork. This ongoing experimentation with the underglaze bubble technique represents my commitment to pushing the boundaries of my craft and exploring new artistic possibilities.
