Lei Xue Uses Smashed Cans to Create Ming Dynasty Style Porcelain

Chinese artist Lei Xue, the brain behind the ongoing series titled Drinking Tea, sculpted these crumbled white cans in the traditional style of Ming Dynasty porcelain. The artist fused modernism and tradition by using his vivid imagination. Unlike the mechanical process of producing real aluminum cans in a factory, each smashed ceramic is sculpted and painted entirely by hand with blue patterns and motifs.
