yee observes the broken and abandoned porcelain fractures to combine them together into a transformed new piece, not in a conventional porcelain form.

yee osserva le fratture della porcellana rotta e abbandonata per combinarle insieme, trasformandole in un pezzo nuovo, di una forma di porcellana “non convenzionale”.

“I took ceramic trash from a ceramic master who reproduces old korean ceramics such as joseon baekja or celadon. after baking in a kiln by using the old method, ceramic masters break almost 70 percent of the porcelains that don’t reach up to their standards of masterpieces. 

I put the broken bits and pieces of ceramic trash together one by one as if I’m putting together a jigsaw puzzle. And I cover the seams with 24 karat gold leaf. the result was uncanny and bumpy objects. each broken piece operates as a self forming into an infinite proliferation toward as unexpected fabrication–fictitious loquacity and stuttering discards from standard conventional masterpieces.”

“ho preso dalla spazzatura la ceramica da un maestro di ceramica che riproduce vecchie ceramiche coreane come joseon baekja o celadon. dopo la cottura in un forno utilizzando il vecchio metodo, i maestri ceramisti rompono quasi il 70 per cento delle porcellane che non raggiungono lo standard qualitativo. ho raccolto i pezzi rotti della ceramica e li ho uniti insieme uno ad uno, come si fa mettendo insieme un puzzle. e copro le fratture con una foglia d’oro da 24 carati .
il risultato sono oggetti misteriosi e sconnessi.”
