Born in 1966 in Singapore, Jason Lim holds a Bachelor of Art (Hons) from Central St Martins College of Art and Design, U.K. (1992) and a Master of Fine Art from Royal Melbourne Institute Technology University, Australia (2003). Lim is a trained ceramicist and interdisciplinary artist. This is one of nine works in the ‘Are you afraid of ceramics and stuff like that’ series. The emphasis is not on the functionality of a vessel, yet Lim retains the vessel form for his objects in this series, and they are intentionally small and manipulated so as to encourage the viewer to go up-close, while serving as reminders of everyday items encountered during mundane circumstances. This work consists of three coarsely modelled and precariously balanced hollow vessels, with contrasting smoke stains, created in the raku technique.
