POUR CELAIN by gregorysung for CRISTINA GRAJALES GALLERIES, new york, at london's MOET HENNESSY pavilion of art and design in berkley square in london, embodies beauty and the dilemma of duality raising issues of art and design form and function. the notion of materials inappropriate for the application are realized and a seemingly fragile object in the shape of a functional object is created.
