Fine China

By comparing ideas and materials, Fine China, explores the composition of improbable materials in ways thatcontradict their function.  The piece pushes our notion about the connotation of certain materials, in this case,porcelain, and how we associate it with fragility and weakness.  In Fine China, I pull together the industrial and domestic as well as the relationship of strong and delicate. I challenge the viewer to question the dichotomy of feminine and masculine, strong and weak, possible  and impossible. This “balancing act” forces us to reexamine our relationships with objects and ideas  physically and metaphorically.
