My work in ceramics is heavily influenced by my Chinese American heritage, revolving primarily around cultural identity and the homogenization of different Asian American experiences. I am drawn to the traditional forms and methods I witnessed throughout my travels in Asia, but my goal is to contemporize the surface using patterns. My work takes the 2-D language of textiles and transposes it into 3-D forms to create a new language through my own interpretation. Throughout my patterns, the viewer can see a common theme of an isolated element, most often a single red element amongst a sea of blue. I am injecting myself into the pattern through the single red element as my own experience as a Chinese American. In doing so, I am in turn expressing my experience in this history of pattern. I believe both the viewer and myself will benefit by bringing forth the contradictions in our societal views of what it is to be Asian American, even through an object as intimate as the cup.
