Natural Ornament 2011

I believes everything in the world leaves its mark. Because of this, people can always see the hidden stories from these aged objects that I have uniquely chosen: the 'worn and torn' appearances give a mysterious feeling to me andjust the elements of the aged appearances are enough to grab my most detailed attention. Cracked lines, peeling paint, rusty metal that appears on and along the buildings or objects. As if they were mother natures way to decorate the world just for my personal insight.

In the this project I experimented with enamel and different surface treatments on metal (mostly copper) to create these wearable objects to express my feeling and the aesthetic of the beauty of aged appearances.
