Beyond Porcelain

Reborn and restructured, this is Beyond Porcelain, also a bamboo repair project.

Porcelain used to be collected and admired by only the wealthy, and therefore, it has always been a symbol of fame and wealth. Delicate and fragile, porcelain is neither usable nor recyclable once it cracks during the production. On the contrary, bamboo is raw and rustic — widely used to produce a variety of household goods, and speaks the farmers’ spirit of toughness and durability. 

Combining the two materials with the traditional bamboo weaving technique, the once-broken vases are repaired and transformed into new objects. Every single object created from this process will be one-of-a-kind.
