Abstract

I create ceramic objects that are simple, geometrical and methodical. The design of these tile-like objects initiated from the idea of serving plates. Although the functional aspect of the work in this show has evolved into a tile piece, function is a part of tile. The series of each pattern was created by repetition and enlarging a small original unit that measured one inch by one inch. This repetition with small and simple units shaped by handmade templates created complex pieces. This coexistence of simplicity and complexity led me to a deep feeling of boundlessness on the tiles. The pattern was intensified by light and shadow, which created dynamic expressive qualities of the surface texture, which include matte, high gloss, opaque, and transparent.
