Recenty, she began combining the abstract charm of blue & white with contemporary ceramic ideas, resulting in a stylish series entitled ‘Arc’. Half-arc slopes crimping ceramic tiles create overlapping and staggering space combinations. The work is simple, quiet and harmonious. Under the lights, its rises and dips, curves and shadows show the work’s rhythm and simple logic.
