All the metal materials used in the "Fragments" series were prepared by myself. During the process, a lot of material experiments were carried out and many tools were made by myself.
The most important thing is that I also experimented with a special ultra-low temperature solder and the exclusive use method of this solder. These are all to allow me to better control my work, and of course it also brings me a lot of fun.
I have collected thousands of pieces of Chinese classical jewelry in the past ten years. In my opinion, the biggest difference between them and jewelry from other countries lies in the way they are combined. It is traditionally called "Cuan Huo" in Chinese. It is very similar to a concept of painting, so I try to apply the concept to my own creation. It is a method of slowly deriving the whole from the part, treating jewelry as a painting with inner life.
In my opinion, whether it is filigree or granulation technology, no matter what kind of technical expression it is, it serves the artistic concept. If the expression is appropriate, I will use it. Thinking about these issues is based on my personal subjective condensing of these technologies, experiences, and world views. It is not universal, it is my own creative language, and these are my whispers to my heart.
In addition to the words, I said to myself, of course I also have things I want to say to the world, things I want to leave to the world. So, there is the work "Lucky Star", which means I want to use art as a tool to change the problems that exist in the reality.
"Congratulations! You just picked up the lucky star. Please put it on the street again in a week to share your good luck with the next person." This is the text engraved on the back of the star. This piece of jewelry has a life of its own, and people's wishes help it travel in this world. The farther it travels and the more people it contacts, the stronger its power will be. So in essence, it is a collective creation, which condenses social consensus, gathers goodwill among the crowd, and is a process of spiritual mutual assistance.
