I really appreciate the worth and meaning of “Mother”. Thus, this always becomes my main concept for my pathway to create my artworks. Also, the viewers could notice or perceive the warmth and tenderness of the mother from my works. Then, my sculptures frequently are bounded up to the timeline of her and my life. When she is growing old, sickness comes to her as same as unstable life. I have to find the new media to communicate and brighten up about my idea of “transformation”. That’s why -Terra Cotta- become the interesting material to develop my works since two years ago. Moreover, this material is similar to bone shape either it’s colour or internal texture when it is broken condition. As a result, I create the aspect of declining of my mom by present the form and structure of bone, organ and skeleton. For my recent work, I have inspiration from the melancholy story of her infirmity, heart attack. She is waiting to have an operation. Her body is unstable and remain unchanged symptoms as same as my tough heartbeat. Flashback to my parent’s generation and their home town, at Dan-Kwien sub-district, Nakhon Ratchasrima province, it is the city of famous terra cotta housewares. I could feel the mainstream of her past and her life. I chose the rural Dan-Kwien pottery shape to transform it by being broken suddenly into pieces as same as her disorder, it’s mother’s heart.
