Vessels explores the journey of loneliness, emotional plateaus, and transformation in one’s self. Inspired by personal experiences, I’ve projection mapped animations onto ceramic vessels shaped as Korean moon jars to represent this emotional journey. To bring Vessels to life, I’ve emulated the traditional process of conjoining two hemispheres on the potter’s wheel to create a jar that resembles a moon. Historically, potters in Korea during the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910) have created moon jars to contain flowers or wine. Ultimately, Vessels intends to physically embody human emotions into ceramic forms, encouraging people to see ceramic pieces beyond utilitarian use and aesthetic purpose, and rather as a vessel to represent emotions.
