I am a potter in exploration, who likes to throw both functional and sculptural pieces. Coming from a culture that largely sustains itself through narratives, both literal and mythical, I look for opportunities to express my understanding of the world where the mythical narratives intersect with the real.
Clay being such a plastic medium provides me with a tangible interface to shape narratives that have played a part in shaping my own ever-changing perceptions of the world, which constantly shift and reshape themselves. Clay, therefore, represents to me as a literal metaphor of my own evolving psyche. I tend to use symbolic motifs in my pieces to frame visual narratives--motifs that represent water hold fascination for me, as water shares similar shape-changing and sustaining characteristics of clay. Therefore, motifs such as fish, moon, and lotus find expression in my pieces.
