Cracker Jar ( Part of the Rendition Series )

Slip casted glazed semi porcelain | h 17cm, w 21 cm | 2008

A series of enamelware remake, commonly used in 1980’s Indonesia countryside for serving and eating. These enamel coating if used for a prolonged time, may break and eventually  rust, and be thrown away or left unused, along with the future experience that may happen. By remaking them in pottery, the memories can be preserved and be continually used to make new memories from future dining experiences. The use of ceramic as the chosen material is a symbol of how memories are strongly well kept but also at the same time,  fragile.
