Clay is a very charming material because it sometimes is flexible and sometimes is solid. And the process of a piece of clay from soft become too hard is so attractive. Some moments can be honestly recorded in a piece of clay. A fingerprint, a tiny crack, a slight of rising at the edge can be documented forever. I let the clay to be free to form their shapes. I used a grater, shave clay into pieces, to create the uneven surface. Then let the clay sit in fabric. The clay follow the curve of fabrics, and after fired, it 'saved' the curve forever. Also I tried to find the balance of 'control' and 'uncontrol'. Most parts of the plate are random, while only the middle part is smooth and neat, to make it more functional.
