About the work :

Black Sun is a ceramic sculpture by contemporary artist Tien Wen from the series "Closed vases".

This sculpture is iconic of Tien Wen's work with its purity, its play with forms and volumes, opposing curves and lines as well as curves and angles. If its shapes resemble those of a vase, the artist's interest is focused only on the form, without thought for any practicality.  Tien Wen even goes so far as to seal the top of the artwork to prevent the viewer seeing a useful object or a purpose. She admits: "I want the artwork to exist by form, by line."

Thanks to the Raku technique (a native Japanese enamelling process), favoured by the artist, the terracotta sculpture takes on a metallic hue, nearing bronze. The viewer is also drawn in by the round shape emerging from the sculpture’s centre, which causes a visual break and a different reflection of the light on the piece.
