Piles of porcelain fragments, found at archaeological sites, wriggled like silkworms, which inspired the artist to bring them back and let silkworms spin all over them. At that moment, silk and porcelain, clay and water were brought together, which seems to be their fate. Silk and porcelain are two different materials: one features softness and delicacy while the other feels hard and cold. However, they are similar in presenting a sense of purity, void and fragility. Most grave goods were covered and preserved with pieces of silk while being buried, which, at the same time, illustrates that silk presents the greatest courtesy in ancient times. Since the age of the Silk Road, silk and porcelain have been bonded together for centuries.
