Jean Z. Poh Double-Gourd Vase Rebirth

DOUBLE-GOURD VASES ("HULU PING")

The double-gourd vases (“Hulu ping”) celebrate the female form and pay homage to the seductiveness of authenticity. As I break apart preconceived notions of femininity, womanhood, and my ethnocultural identity the themes of body image, fertility, resilience, vulnerability, and self-worth are reflected in my work through the choice of materials, technique, and silhouettes of the vases.
