이 작품은 손으로 만든 사물에 대한 개인의 생각을 보여준다. 대학원 학생 때부터 손으로 만든 사물, 완벽함, 불완전함, 손의 한계에 대한 고민이 나의 개인적인 연구의 추진력이 되어왔다. 이 작품에는 우리가 자연에서 보는 것과 같은 “의도된 완벽한 불완전함”을 암시하고 강조하는 작가의 흔적이 남아있다.

One aspect of this body of work has to do with an individual’s thoughts and expectations of handmade objects, perfection, imperfection, and limitations of the hand have that have fueled my personal research since grad school. There is a residue of the mark of the maker and hints and highlights “intended perfect imperfections” such as we see in nature.
