The process of firing clay has been used to craft the body of three generations of women; reflecting inter-generational relationships and bonds which promote mutual influence, respect and responsibility.

The temperature and duration of the firing process affects the colour, texture and hardness of the finished pieces and convey that women at different life stages encounter varied life experiences and challenges which define such stages of life that usually requires inter-generational support. At the end of the firing process, the colour changes completely, symbolising the passages of life.

透過陶泥燒製技巧,塑造了婆婆、媽媽和我,三代女性身體,反映出我們互相影響及互相投射的關係。溫度和時間影響到顏色、質感及堅硬程度,意味著每一個階段的女性都承受著各種歷練,而顏色變化能呈現歲月的流逝。
