Chen Wenling, Happy Life NO.22
“I am intrigued by our intimate relationship to the crafted object. The embodiment of utility, divinity and beauty in the vessel form is as ancient as the existence of human consciousness. The process of making my ceramic vessels is animated by ideas of fecundity and containment intrinsic to the human form and the natural world. These notions find resonance in mythology, language and the hand-made object throughout history. My vessels speak of a conversation between ancestry and the present.
Clay - with its malleability and transformations, fragility and endurance - is both an elemental medium and a record-keeper of lived experience and culture. Its mysterious and sensual nature and the fact that it is literally grounded suggest a metaphor for human life.”
