Identical

The principle of shaping the "identical" series is to change the proportion of 4 sectors from 4 feet point in one circle in order to control different heights of the utensils. The functions of the 5 utensils are also changed according to their heights and diameters. When piled together, the silhouette of the set also highlights the identical circle of the original one that is used to create the series. 

Identical(大同)是将现代的造型语言运用到传统漆器上的一次尝试,造型的原则是在圆内立下四足,通过改变四个扇形的比例来控制器皿的高度,既而改变器皿的功能。由此形成的系列堆叠在一起时,其剪影将重现最初的圆,故而取名为大同。

Another specific point in finish is the coarse rim of each utensil. We would like to create tactile as well as visual feeling of gradients from roughness to smoothness, density to sparseness, and heaviness to lightness to comply with the metaphor of contrasts. The random pattern of the rough rims that created by grey tile powder also express a key value of handmade objects -- irreplaceable by industrially made molds.

另一个特定的点在完成是粗糙的边缘。我们想要创造从粗糙到平滑、从密度到稀疏、从沉重到轻盈的渐变的触觉和视觉感受,以符合对比的隐喻。由灰瓦粉制成的粗糙边缘的随机图案也体现了手工制品的一个关键价值——这是工业模具所无法替代的。
