Metalsmith as a practice makes me ponder the property of metal and the symbolic meaning of objects. This project is on memories. The solid and lasting nature of metal has induced me to ”freeze” it. My grandfather mended my clothes and shoes to show his care subtly. The trace of the mended object is not only the symbol of care but also a memory container. I want to conserve the memory by representing the mended objects to metal, making it solid.
