Patterns were abstracted from the Chan Zhi Lian, a symbolic pattern appears on ceramic wares during the silk road era.
Tea, paper, silk played important role in the silk road.
Meet Make Collaborate is a touring exhibition program between artists from Nova Scotia and Scottland. The exhibition will present new works which respond to one or several of the project themes of identity, sustainability and collaboration and will cover a range of disciplines including textiles, weaving, ceramics, jewellery and basketry.
In this project, my work partner Susan O’Bryan contributed her incredible knowledge about ceramic material. In those uncountable online meetings with Susan, the information exchange between us included technical support, profound cultural influences from each other. Like the culture shocks along the silk road between the east and the west, we are in a new era, a new silk road era.
