The Moon Jar of Korea holds endless efforts to overcome limits. The round shape and uneven surface of the jar is similar with a living thing that comes out of its egg or slips off its skin. And it coincides with the effort for survival and advancement that is the purpose of evolution and variation, the theme of my work. The myriad of pure silver welding points seen on the surface of this work reveal the process of work while at the same time symbolizing the traces of life growing, such as the wooden cross-section’s rings or fish’s side lines.
