I explored creative possibilities of casting and integrated glass, the interplay between light and shadow, creating an image of glass growing. The glass art in the process of creating has many uncertainties, but also has its reasonable and natural characteristics. As with the metaphorical language of glass art, the main feeling is not only the people, but also the extremely rich and complex human and social scale. Different standards to judge and accept the metaphor is different. Therefore, a different audience on the glass art language always has different feelings. In my opinion, control is not the highest rule for artist. Technique is the fundamentally for achievement of freedom, as it is a realistic force and achieves the final unification with art.
