Chenchen Hu

MA work

Half and Half

With a background in product design, Chenchen is exploring the relationship between ceramic sculptures and functional objects that can provide a chance for people to shift their roles between viewer and user. She designs objects with ambiguous forms that have unspecific functions to leave the decision of utilization to the users.

By maintaining unity of form and the colour black, paired with an array of colour use, and the mixture of slip-casting technique versus hand-built texture, her work draws a conversation on the contrast between mass production and craftsmanship in ceramics, as well as the relation between conscious control and unexpected liberation.
