WHY DUMPLINGS?

The ritual of folding dumplings is a shared experience for Asian women who labor together, across generations, communities, and cultures. Making hundreds of porcelain dumplings alone is a meditation on the artist’s relationship to her cultural history and Americans' relationship to Chinese food.

ANYTHING ELSE?

The project also includes painted stoneware sculptures of condiments and packaged foods from the Asian-American kitchens of the 80s and 90s. You can see them on Instagram.

IS THE WORK FOR SALE?
