Gallery Mondays: Broken Blue Angry Birds Vase @ Hofstra’s Emily Lowe Gallery

angry birds art

Feast your eyes on a broken vase from an exhibit called Past Traditions/New Voices in Asian Art, showcased at Hofstra University’s Emily Lowe Gallery during the fall of 2014.

The exhibit was a mixture of the old and the new (as the name of the exhibition suggests), with pieces ranging from a canvas of mock Chinese calligraphy (which was actually written in a Latin alphabet), to Ai Weiwiei’s “Grapes.”

Oh, and if you were wondering about the drawings on the vase then yes, those are definitely Angry Birds.

I couldn’t help thinking about a parallel universe where someone sling shot an Angry Bird at a vase, inspiring Jiha Moon‘s broken ceramic vase.

An Afternoon in Hofstra’s Ceramic Workshop

Yesterday, during my 3 hour long break in between classes, I decided to visit my friend Sauani Hasan in the ceramics workshop at Hofstra to see how her peacock vase was coming along.

I got some great footage of her working on it. She’s quite the dedicated artist.

I cannot wait to see this when it’s done!
