A wonderfully representative piece in Soo Pieng’s oeurve, the energetic force emitting from the circular shapes combined with the magnificence of a single line in the centre creates a balanced composition. The shimmering green colour from the glaze transmits an aura of serenity and peace. Soo Pieng’s long-held interest and desire to explore symbols and languages absorbed throughout his lifetime have been encapsulated in the concaved space.
