Among the most striking components of Richmond ceramicist Cathy Lu’s new exhibition “Interior Garden” at the Chinese Cultural Center was “Peripheral Visions,” an installation of ceramic eyes in shades of yellow that are meant to evoke the shape of East Asian eyes. They drip yellow onion water into a variety of vessels made in China, ranging from traditional jars and pots to plastic buckets.
