Artist Statement

Fabric Formula No.1 is a set of ceramic tea sets, which changed the traditional making process of slip casting, for the purpose of showing the unique beauty bought by textile in mass production.
When a piece of fabric of the right size is inserted into the mould for slip casting. The slip automatically attaches the fabric to the inner wall of the mould due to gravity, that is, the inner wall of one mould is covered by the fabric. Correspondingly, half of the ceramic texture of the demoulded ceramic product comes from the fabric texture naturally.

As for the form of Fabric Formula No.1, half of the ceramic after the moulding is like being elegantly wrapped by the fabric, resulting in an interesting contrast with the smooth, natural surface pattern coming out of traditional moulding.

Through this works, I explored the possibility of different roles of general fabrics in mould production. The uncertainty caused by artificial factors is thereby transformed into the unique beauty of the product itself. In the context of mass production, giving each product a unique shape will result in the unique relationship between the product and the customer
