Honky Nuts
Shin-I Tang
Medium: southern ice porcelain
My honky nut sculpture is a nostalgic reflection of growing up in Perth. It is also an examination of beauty in the common and the understated. Porcelain was used to represent my Chinese heritage and as a contrast between the ordinary and the refined. The basic form was thrown on the potters wheel, hand altered, carved and then high fired.
