The light sculpture, "Undulation", is made from translucent porcelain. The sculpture is a simple cylinder but the technique for making it is particularly demanding. The movement comes from combining my throwing marks and the overlapping clay walls. I start by throwing very thin porcelain walls on the wheel, then pulling them apart, and finally assembling them carefully around a cylinder form. This is how my throwing marks appear vertically.
The light sculpture emulates the organic forms of nature such as trees and water. The undulating and sensuous lines on the surface evoke the murmur of waves. At the same time, the soft light coming through the porcelain wall is reminiscent of the glow seen in kilns during the firing.
