Profile (HIGHLIGHT)

I love to experiment with clay because it allows me to express my creativity in a tangible manner. The primary material of my work is porcelain. I fell in love for its pure fineness, translucency and strength, but still struggle to embrace its brittleness and lack of plasticity. However, this challenging nature yet somehow leads me to see the reality of surprises, failures, frustrations, excitements and enjoyments of life as a ceramic artist.
