What if they are bubbles but can’t fly

I always have these strange feelings in my mind, they are unreal, ineffable, sometimes dark and heavy, sometimes light and beautiful, they are untouchable and fleeting like bubbles. Bubbles are always full of air, we always think they are floating. When I was doing the experiments on materials combing glass and ceramic, I found some bubbles that are also full of air but cannot float. Why do bubbles have to float lightly? This work made up of one big and four small porcelain balls.

For me, it’s an innovation of the way it’s made. It’s not uncommon to combine glass and ceramic, but what I did this time was to combine them completely as raw materials, to make their finished product more complete.
