"Time, Water, and Movement" is a series of studies I've undertaken, focusing on merging different elements—time, water, and movement. Conceptually, I metaphorically attribute the fluidity of water to the passage and intangibility of time, creating a series of items akin to surreal, time-frozen objects. Given my choice of using everyday containers as vessels, this work also delves into the blurred boundaries between art and design.

In terms of material utilization, I drew inspiration from my residency at the Kahla Porcelain Factory in 2015, where I refined traditional porcelain casting techniques. I captured the tipping process of a water-filled vessel using blue liquid porcelain. Rather than forcing the material to achieve specific, challenging effects, I orchestrated precise arrangements to showcase its most natural state. For instance, the blue liquid porcelain naturally formed a horizon line when poured into plaster molds placed at different angles.
