Ceramic Yin Yang Sculpture

Description

One of the best known symbols of Chinese culture, Yin Yang represents the balance brought about by opposing forces. The symbol can be found in paintings and drawings, included in textiles, depicted in tattoos, shown on key fobs, even designed as earrings.

This is a particularly appealing example. It is a stoneware ceramic and is made from crank clay and carefully incised with the lines picked out with a colour wash. The lower-side is a half-dome shape, but with the flat base set at an angle so that the face is better seen.

This lovely sculpture would be equally at home inside or out. Often used to describe the changing seasons, it would look good in the garden all year round.


Tilted Yin Yang

Artist : Karen Edwards

I have long been interested in Far-Eastern culture. So refreshingly different from ours. I'm encouraged by the Tai Chi symbol. I subscribe to the concept of complementary forces where the whole becomes greater than the part. As an artist, to me the finished piece is much more than just a shape made of clay.
