"When unearthing bronze vessels, we saw not only the objects made thousands of years ago but also what nature had done to them. The rusts and the breaks were evidence of nurturing by nature. I took this chance to recreate the image of an unearthed bronze vessel in wood. Burl itself is a material nurtured by nature, creating a unique grain pattern. How uncanny it was to be able to take this character to convey the idea of the unearthed bronze vessel."
