Clay Series

2013, Clay, wood, 10"w x 12"h x 11"d

This is about the mixture of materials. Clay is extremely strong and fragile at the same time. On the other hand, wood is strong and steady. I tried to connect the materials into a single piece of furniture that can still preserve the artistic characteristic of clay and the sense of wood furniture. The hand-pressed clay slab with glossy glaze creates an organic feeling. However, the simple cap system for connecting the wood and the hand-lathed wood leg inherit the sense of furniture. I hope these contrasts can form an interesting dialogue between different materials.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
