Ice and bisque stoneware
3" x 3" x 3" each
I worked with the two contradictory conditions of materials: clay and ice. While clay turns into hardened material once it’s fired from the soft status, ice is the opposite when it melts. As the ice melts with human temperature on their hands, the rose poetically blooms, which seems romantic within the material relationship. I played the video of me performing as instruction for audiences to participate and gave out the roses to people who melted them.
