CRADLE is conceptualised not just as a decorative candle holder or flower vase, but as an instrument to materialise immaterial phenomena such as light, shadow and flame. In order to realise this concept, the artist maximized the physical properties of the materials through a combination of geometric shapes and mathematical proportions. The artwork is composed of two-layer structure —quartz glass and stainless steel— and its arc shape makes the artwork sway like a cradle.  The artwork attempts to enhance our perceptions of the aesthetics of physical laws lurking in the depth of our daily lives.
