About the work :

Occulus is a ceramic sculpture by contemporary artist Tien Wen.

Her work is centered around the idea of abstraction and a quest for the purest forms. This minimalist sculpture is a perfect example. An oculus is a circular opening in the centre of a dome or a wall particularly in classical architecture like ancient Roman basilicas. Was this the inspiration for this sculpture in which the brightness of the upper portion stemming from the darker base seems to illuminate the room.

This work possesses both the white enamel and the iron oxidized black obtained through a smoking process. Though the shape resembles that of a vase, the artist and sculptor's interest is purely and simply in the form, beyond any thoughts of utility and functionality. She makes use of a technique known as Raku ( a Japanese enameling technique ) which through a smoking process imparts a cracked raw aspect onto the surface of clay sculptures.
