The building is a 7m×7m×7m cube inspired by the image of a block of clay pulled up from the nearby river. The studio and exhibition spaces are created by “weaving” the natural surroundings, other watchers together with the daily activities of artisan around the potter’s wheel. The artist works in the boundary between light and shadow. . He can have soulful conversations with the works, his shadow and with himself. We try to create a space where the external environment is able to interact with the internal architectural area.
