Dunhuang – Untold Tales, Untold Riches

Dunhuang was a major city along the silk road, the Dunhuang caves are a time capsule of the arts, religion, history of the period.

The artifacts in the exhibition are replicas which included 3 full size caves and a 13 meter long Buddha.
I do appreciate that the works have not been destroy for our pleasure and benefits.  The replicas are more than good enough for me.

For those of us who indulge in the memory of old Hong Kong, dont miss the chance to see Fan Ho‘s work in Hong Kong.
His photos not only capture the history of time but also the romance and humor.  It is as if one would re-enter this filmic place through the frame of his camera.

Print

“In the beginning, all is without form and void.  Subsequent to collision, interaction and convergence, order is created; form and cognition appeared.  That’s how our story begins.

Seven individuals; seven entangled minds converged through clay and expressed in one exhibition.

Akin to many urbanites, we live with heavy workloads and pressure in everyday life.  Pottery cleanses our souls; mends cracks of regrets left behind as we grow up; clears tangled thoughts; awakens the seed of creativity buried deep within us.  It nourishes our lives.”

This item selected by Furze for the Something Old Something New exhibition and is available at both Mountain Folkcraft and Soil.

This is a traditional Chinese white glaze candle stand, this can be seen by the small hole on center of the top dish.  The traditional candle has a bamboo stick attached to the bottom, the candle would be secured by inserting it into the small hole.  Candle stands have been around since the 3 Kingdoms period (210AD) until the Tang dynasty they have been more descriptive and elaborated capturing the shape an animal or a plant, etc.  From the Sung dynasty, the form became more utilitarian and the 2 level form are the most common.

Talking about candles, I would like to share with you the candles hand made and designed by my friend Maha Alusi in Berlin.  And of course her view on “Passing Moments”.
