Ceramic art has a long history in most developed countries. Ceramic artifacts are often the best evidences of ancient or vanished cultures. I enjoy reading the historical books and exploring the heritage sites. So it is delightful to learn more how to create a piece of ceramic art.



My Ceramics experience in 2011 and 2022


I've had two times of ceramic experiences in Tainan (2011) and Yingge【Note1】(now - March, 2022) respectively. 11 years ago I made a 'pinch pot' with clay at a local studio. Now, I am learning how to paint the under-glaze decoration from Ministry of Culture awarded - a Taiwan Crafts Workshop. After a decade, Combining these two experiences I finally understand better ceramic production, and behind it the art. 【Note2】
