In the process of making prototype models for this series of tableware, hot thin wires were used to cut through high-density foams, leaving rich patterns and subtle linear textures on the surfaces. Ceramic forms created in this way are free and varied. They are controllable, and at the same time, show chanciness and randomness. This is quite different from the rigid and mechanical way in which most domestic ceramic products are made. Each item in this series has surface that resembles the ice cliff of a glacier. By using the “Ice Age” theme, I wish to remind people the urgency of protecting our ecological environment now when global warming is accelerating rapidly. This series is highly versatile, comprising bowl, cup, small plate, big plate, chopsticks holder, salt-shaker, pepper-shaker, vinegar bottle, soy sauce bottle and flavouring saucer.
