This project is my attempt to visualize the presence of my unique sense of synaesthesia. During the epidemic, I went to Jingdezhen city to master the medium of ceramics. To me, making ceramic is a healing process. During the five months I spent with the clay, I kept making various geometric combinations of vessels, which connected to my pre-college interest in mathematical geometry and memories from my childhood. My practice made me realize for the first time that I have the ability of synaesthesia. For this project, I wanted to use the medium of ceramics to combine color, texture, and shapes to invite the viewer to experience the possibilities of synesthesia.
