Project description

This series of works mainly explores the transformation of materials between different forms. The main focus is on wood, which uses engraving technology to gradually reduce the amount of wood. At the same time, collect the dust of wood during the engraving process and reuse it in the design again. It expresses the process of transforming from wood itself into wood dust. One part is gradually disappearing but the other part is gradually growing.

Other Projects

The following project mainly revolves around silver, using the technique of reticulation to make textures of different depths on the surface of the silver. The process of reticulation is a handicraft closely related to the application time, and any subtle difference in the production process will be reflected in the metal. This series uses the technique of reticulation to show the changes of metal at different times, from flatness to folds, from freshness to shrinkage.
