Accrescere II

Made by Jae Won Lee, an associate professor of Art and Art History at MSU. As the artist describes, ” With Accrescere II  (Latin, meaning to increase or grow) the multiple seedpod-like forms are made out of white and colored porcelain of pale blue shades that were then fired at 2,350 degrees Fahrenheit, in both oxidation and reduction atmospheres. While much of the décor in the new Hubbard space is bright, lively, and trendy, I wanted to create a space for something soothing and appealing, something both mesmerizing and abstract, something that would draw people from afar toward it. I wanted my art to impart, somehow, a resting place.” Porcelain, Mono Filament, Beads 18 in. by 64 in. [neighborhoods.msu.edu article; publicart.msu.edu]
