“This is Jia Jia Ji Chen’s work and it is somewhere between art and function. For example, she makes these maracas by hand-rolling porcelain balls for the inside and then making the outside through slipcasting. Rather than waste the inside of the slip cast from the maracas she pours out the center and turns it into plates. This is the much more functional side of her work. The use of materials is really clever.”
