Clay from fields in Taishan was used to make this set of ceramic bowls. My childhood was spent in Taishan. That place shaped me into the person I am today. The rice fields form my strongest impressions of Taishan – the fresh straw smell, the small creatures in the fields and playing in the mud. In recent years, the farmland in Taishan is gradually disappearing and being replaced by new construction. These bowls preserve the soil of where I once played as a child, preserve my fading memories, and also present the changes to farmland in Taishan.
