Ceramics by Karena Lam #49

林嘉欣從2020年2月開始造陶,這些陶器算是一個小總結,紀錄著她與泥土的對話,與當中有過的感動。

「很想一直跟陶生活下去。」

這裡看到的每一款都只在OBSCURA販售,因為是手作,即使用同一種泥、同一釉藥、同一種燒製方法,也沒有一件結果相同。希望它們能成為你每天使用的器具,感受捧在手心時的觸感,讓這份悸動溫暖著日常。

這裡看林嘉欣跟我們聊造陶生活

「我覺得泥土真的有讓我成為一個更好的聆聽者。」

「我常常覺得,探討人生就等於探討泥土一樣吧。」

「像是無法拉到一模一樣的東西,即使計好了預好了相同的釉藥,但它還是常在意料之外,會覺得很多的瞬間在下一刻就無法重複,你會知道這是我們每人生命裡一個課題,你會知道那個瞬間之後就會瞬逝。」

「還在學習怎樣不去佔有它們,愈無法就愈要學會捨得放下吧。」

「泥土其實是不會絕望的,因為它會不斷有的,也明白生命有一種定律,會知道冬天到萬物會枯死,春天會誕生生命,會有盼望有期待。泥土的包容性,有一種重生的message,是一種好樸實的道理和感覺。」

Karena Lam’s ceramic journey started in February 2020. This series of works comes as a milestone of her ongoing journey of exploration and a record of her dialogue with ceramics.

“I want to live with ceramics forever.”

No one piece of ceramic is the same. Every piece you see here on OBSCURA is unique, exclusive, and individually composed — even if they come from the same clay body, apply the same glaze, or use the same firing method to produce. We hope that when you get hold of these pieces, you can feel Karena’s emotions and the warmth of her hands. Let them be part of your personal space and daily life.

“I think pottery has really made me a better listener.”

“I feel like navigating life is just like navigating pottery.”

“Like you just can’t throw the clay the same way twice. You can prepare and mix the glaze according to a standard measurement, but the result is always something else, the moments and flashes of transmutations in between never to be repeated. The same goes for life.”

“I’m still learning how not to hold onto my creation. The more difficult it is, the more I need to let go.”

“Clay symbolises hope. It nurtures and regenerates, but it also understands the law of nature: everything has its seasons. Because clay understands this, it is hopeful and accepting. Its patience brings a message of rebirth.”
