To learn more about my position in the world as a Taiwanese American by considering the relationship between form and function in tea wares. The importance of the role tea plays in Eastern society makes it a specific point of research that is steeped in hundreds of years of tradition. By creating iterations of similar forms, I was able to work through and improve on details such as the proportion between the body and the vessel. Throughout the process of making an important aspect is the consideration of the ideas of contemplation and meditation as they play a large role in the tea ceremony culture and what that means to me and my art.
