About︎


As a visual artist, Jaajr delves into the intricate connections between the self, time, and the continuous change of the universe. Through a practice-based approach that revolves around the exploration of materials and the art of making, she seeks to unravel the mysteries of existence and translate them into works that challenge the boundaries of traditional art forms.

By immersing themselves in the creative process, Jaajr's art seeks to bridge the gap between the tangible and the intangible, inviting viewers to contemplate the interconnectedness of all things and the fluid nature of the universe.

✹ In doubt we make, I guess
date
               
To get back on my feet after taking a new year break, I gently start by finishing the old work I have started from last year. Two air dry clay vases I planned to send to chrome paint supplier have been pulled out again after I have dropped the sample making because I wanted to change the material to ceramic.

I think it would be a great opportunity to use these two prototypes as a ‘playground’ for me to roll the wheel of my practice again, by weaving the green garden wire with 4 connecting points together around the vase - I felt like I was meditating in some way and by that it gave me the sense of what I am doing with the fan making project - as Oscar once told me to improve the motif of the module which involved with 4 connecting points. I guess it’s the similar thing.



By weaving it with non-patterning manner - it turns out to be a good practice for  being conscious about the next connecting point because however you do with the current one will affect to the others. Kind of remind me to be mindful to the consequences of the knots. The first one I made is more of the mock-up - I didn’t paint the vase with any colour, just leave it raw brown. Well.. actually all of them is just a mock-ups, something I made just to warm up my practice and use it as an opportunity to think through making.

The result doesn’t turn out to be something I picture in my mind. But it’s fine , I still see the potential of this technique. I can make it more ‘pattern’ next time, using thicker wire, better colour(more colourful, reflective wire, more fancy - I prefer it that way) this first one reminds me of cracked dry dirt. Maybe because of the colour. Maybe because of the material. But yes, I enjoy making it.



For the second one, I wanted to fix the downside of the first so I want to change the appearance a bit by spray it matt black and use lead wire. I found it’s really pleasing to weave the wire into the random pattern(similar to the first one) because of the softness of the wire - it makes more satisfying feeling when made. I have only done some part of it as I run out of the material but I can see how it will turn out to be.


Later this week, I made another vase using ceramic clay ( for the first time ) I found the clay was softer and more flexible than air-dry clay and it was more difficult to manipulate. The clay keeps expanded wider and wider in the undesired direction. I used one of the components that I found from DIY store I visited the other day to decorate the vase, I think it gave the vase more context in general. It looks like it’s smiling. I don’t know if I can fire it one day as I have to remove the component but I like this one. It turns out to be something I picturing in my mind.

This vase making exercise is nothing near the subject of shininess, the uncertainty of power but yes I accomplished the purpose of this exercise which is just to roll that wheel of making. It’s a good start for this year. I found it’s enjoyable and pleasant to make these vases and I used them as one of the methods of meditation. It for sure connect to the fan project in the way of designing the motif as I mentioned above. I got some more I idea about the fan making which will be updated in the next blog. And I hope I can develop this project further when the workshop is open. I miss going to the campus so much, I hope everything will be normal soon. Even the word ‘normal’ doesn't sound sensible these days, but yeah I hope everything will be better soon.
