Life and time pass by like floating water. However, opposite to the fluid quality, stone sculpture represents solidified memory for the sake of remembrance. This work combines the practicability of daily furniture and beauty of stone sculpture in one piece. Monuments, milestones, statues, even gravestones, are all made of stones. It's because lives roll by and vanish, but people hope to retain the transient images and everything represented behind the images, hoping things to be remembered forever. The combination of daily furniture and stone sculpture at one work represents the implication of displaying “things still alive” and “memorials to passed” at the same time, in remembrance of daily implements, classic forms, and a passed era.
