Artist Name: Yu Chen
Title: 2013
Class: Sculpture 3
Project title: The Flat
Create a sculpture that originates and extends from one or more handmade felt piece(s). Use any materials to build out from and support the felt. Make all elements used an active part of the piece. The sculpture should capitalize on both the evocative qualities of the felt as well as its flatness
Media: Hand made felt
Scale : 16in x 20in x 10in
Artist statement: 
 I was mostly inspired by Tibetan Buddhism. I made this felt skull, which derived from khatvanga staff in Tibetan Buddhism. Khatvanga staff can be used as religious implement or weapon. In this piece, I want to connect asian elements with modern colors that people can experience ancient culture in a different way.
