13-year Old

13-year Old

As a complement to 16-year Old I purchased in Beijing, I made a 13-year old brother to keep her company. It is through sculpture I can see my style of creativity running freely. I have to admit that I am not a very potter on wheel, and after many years, I still have many technical faults when throwing on wheels. However, with sculpture, I can execute images in my head with precision. 13-year old is a good example of such execution. I dedicated this sculpture to my significant other who encouraged me to make the purchase of 16-year Old when we were in Beijing. :)

6 Salt & Pepper Chess Pieces

With the unexpected success of selling the "My Sweet Home" salt & pepper shaker in 2009, I was encouraged to make more salt & pepper shakers, mostly for my own amusement. These 6-piece salt & pepper chess pieces are thrown on wheel with hand sculptured heads.

I like them quite a bit; therefore, I'm not sure if I am ready to put them up for sale yet. However, even if I do, I plan to put a pretty expensive price tag on it to deter people buying them unless they really like the set.
