As a child I used to join my family for Chinese Lantern Festival, which was always something
very special. In fact, each motif on the lanterns has a meaning. For instance, lotuses mean
purity and longevity in Asian culture, and they are often used as symbolic objects in Buddhism.
I combined the oriental traditional and modern visual elements to achieve a level of functional
art objects, developing an approach which can be applied universally in various interior
settings. The aim is to preserve and revive a traditional oriental embroidery technique; specifically
the once-lost Su embroidery method and combine it with contemporary design approaches.
