Clay is like a human being to me. I like spinning clay on the wheel. In my work, there are variation of lines where long and short, straight and curvy, symbolises the different challenges we face in our life. The different form of lines remind us to be flexible and resourceful in finding solutions to overcome the challenges. The process of glazing is like putting on clothing for the ceramic. Glazing can be a simple or complex process; the colours used can be bright or dark, loud or soft, like how we dress to suit the time, place and occasion.
