'I want to tell them that one day all their broken pieces will stick back together and for those who were lost, may their soul rest in peace.'

Six stages of grief explores the idea of defective beauty. The series was inspired by the theory called five stages of grief developed by Elisabeth Kübler-Ross. The five stages, which are denial, anger, negotiation, depression and acceptance, are parts that help us learn how to live with the fact that the people we loved are gone. In recent years, LI has become concerned about the issue of mental illnesses in society. In this work, LI tries to show that through the art of collage, trashes can still be turned into wonderful and usable things. She hopes to encourage those who are suffering from sicknesses.

A step forward is about creating a balance between two extreme conditions. When processing a goblet, it is necessary to keep all parts within the same temperature. If you don't focus on it consistently and one part cools down, there is a large chance that the whole piece will be broken. LI thinks that the process of making a goblet is just like her life. She thinks that the process is just like taking a balance between her extreme emotions and health. Through making the work, it encourages her to be brave when facing her own mental sickness.
