fracture ‘broken plates’ journey started when  art curator @yuanmengyali inspired me and pointed out the value of 'fracture works' underlining a sustainability moment ~ never waste a thing! 

ceramics is a challenging practice, and you end up with many broken and cracked works during the making process. Especially with dinnerware, you cannot get away with these kinds of incidents. As a believer in leaving less carbon print as possible, I never want to throw away any of my faulty! works (I never do). The idea of glazing broken plates and transforming them into other objects comes from this ideology. 

Not all objects are functional or meaningful…The broken plates travel with me around the world and become one of my focal points of my analogue photography, creating unique moments; a fracture in a fracture of time…
