Clouds are an auspicious symbol representing immortality and longevity. I adopted them as a metaphor for my own floating sense of identity between Korean and American cultures. Their ever-changing, formless nature is analogous to the way I perceive the fluidity of my cross-cultural identity. Metaphorically they are breaking out of the past, yet leaving a remnant of tradition intact. The cloud imagery is contemporized to create a new identity for the pots suggesting renewal and transformation.
