Perilous

I innovate in moulded glass to create sculptures and architectural features.

Wink

This ephemeral architecture is the common ground between architecture and art. This unique work, exhibited at the Kobe Biennial 2013 in Japan, has been designed to please the eye and meet easy-assembly requirements, zipping any of it's components to the next one making a perfect art piece that changes as you walk inside of it. The relationship between the structure itself and the visitors is quite close, since anyone can open or close any of its parts as if it was a window.

The vibrant, unexpected and surreal nature of the Mexican character inspired the furniture collection “Los Enmascarados”, reflecting iconic Mexican masks. The Doubleface is one of the five pieces of the collection, his mask represents the battle between good and evil.

The right side is the evil face, its feet are sticking dangerously up in the air and it has its unexpected evil drawer, you don’t really know what will happen when you open it.

The end is the beginning

Yuelin Hua,she comes from a myserious place with 25 ethnic minorities,dense virgin forest,rolling mountains,serene lake and Shangri-La. This place is very close to the sky. People walk in the clouds.

This artwork also for thanks. Thank some people for sacrifice own lives to warm others and illuminate others.
