A suspended vase adorned with interwoven roots, encapsulating the essence of nature in a contemporary rendition. It seems as though the very spirit of the plant has fearlessly intertwined itself with the vase, as if the roots of the plant have grown out of the vase, forging a remarkable bond between the botanical and the artistic realms. “Imperfections” With every stone I shatter, I believe the stone's spirit emerges from the fractures. I break them not in disdain, but in reverence, for imperfection, I have come to know, is a harmonious part of existence. We must acknowledge that in this world, perfection's unattainable mirage eludes us all. And so, I resolved to impart a message, to enlighten hearts to the beauty within imperfections. When I cleave a stone, I am not merely sculpting art; I am, in silent whispers, acknowledging my own past heartbreaks. Those fragments have contributed to who I am today, a mosaic of strength, etched in the tapestry of my being. “Roots” My love for nature runs deep. I recall a day when I meandered through a serene park, gazing in awe at the towering trees with their expansive, labyrinthine roots. The interwoven lines of their roots left an indelible mark upon my soul. It was at that moment that I resolved to immortalize the majesty of those roots in my vase, using delicate steel wires mirroring nature’s patterns. .
