Interview with Patricia Sheung Ying Wong at Saturday 16th of March 2013: DI: What is the main principle, idea and inspiration behind your design?
PW : As my first attempt to explore slip-casting, I decided to start with daily objects. The form of the design was inspired by my trip to Yellowstone National Park. I am also fond by the idea of discovering tiny surprise from every day's repetitive life, so I tried to add a little of that surprising elements into this design.

DI: What has been your main focus in designing this work? Especially what did you want to achieve?
PW : During the process, I tried to achieve beautiful while practical design by observing people's ways of handling daily objects.

DI: What are your future plans for this award winning design?
PW : I made mistakes and discovered new things during the process. I hoped to include those discoveries if I am improving the piece.

DI: How long did it take you to design this particular concept?
PW : 3 months

DI: Is your design being produced or used by another company, or do you plan to sell or lease the production rights or do you intent to produce your work yourself?
PW : I was contacted by few buyers before showing their interest in producing this specific design, but currently I don't have any plan of reproducing them myself. If anyone is interested in this design, feel free to contact me.

DI: Who did you collaborate with for this design? Did you work with people with technical / specialized skills?
PW : Yep, I worked with two ceramic artists on this design. Would like to take this chance to thank them! Kate and Michael! They taught me so much.
