Trilogy II, by Paris-based artist Han-Chiao is both sculptural and functional. Trilogy is made up of three separate pieces that work on their own or as one tall sculpture. Han Chiao’s vessels, which she creates by throwing clay on a wheel, are made from black sand and glazed in white zinc oxide. The material makes them look like Shang-dynasty ritual bronze vessels or Han-dynasty pottery excavated from a grave. Han Chiao notes that her black stoneware vessels echo the millennium-old tradition of binding a Chinese girl’s feet so that she had limited mobility—and was better suited for marriage. “Comparable to the Asian women who would shift from side to side when walking, the vessel reveals this same feminine, dance- like form, counterbalanced by primitive heart-drawn shapes that imitate [cave] art from
prehistoric times,” she says. The “Teeth” series is a collection of bowls and vases whose edges have sharp, finely honed peaks that resemble shark teeth.
