Zhihui Xie Artist Statment
Incorporating ceramics into sculptural form, I focus on speaking the language of throwing. The nature of the material and the purity of the form always takes first place in my thought. More than glaze-finish or perfection I focus on allowing the clay body to reveal itself and let the cracks and unfinishedness remain.
To invent something new, the original form has to be destroyed.
“If there were a complete incompleteness, what form might it take”?
I always keep this specific insoluble question in mind whenever I move forward to next piece.
