new year, new directions

With less paid writing [or possibly none] on the horizon at the moment, now is a great time to focus on my ceramic comission for G.O.D. and plan new applications/outlets for my work. There is the ongoing question of whether to leave Hong Kong for Beijing/Glasgow/London but this is mainly a hypothetical debate because life as usual intervenes and things continue in the direction set by daily routine. Horses are on my mind as next year is the year of the horse in the Chinese calendar and this is informing my work alongside the many traditional motifs used in China on ceramics and other objects of applied and fine art and everything else in the universe. These symbols have a narative as well as decorative value and usually signify good things, especially for the future. I seem to be focussing on animals at the moment and I’m greatful for the opportunity to explore Chinese aesthetics for [more or less, in any depth] the first time since coming here.
