Soot, ashes in Glass
In rapidly changing contemporary societies, we have been accustomed to disappearance.
I wanted to capture those disappearing things that we just took for granted and that we let go unnoticed.
Traces of daily life, such as falling leaves, wind-blown dead leaves, ordinary newspapers, and receipts have been formed through glass medium.
Created only through the glass fusing process that the said materials in between the glass were fired without any help of artificial pigments, the traces remain preserved inside the clear, unchanging glass.
Just like the splashed ink on Chinese drawing paper, smudged soot made inside the glass creates an ink-and-wash painting in glass.
Disappeared, yet not disappeared…
