I have been working with clay since childhood, having been fortunate to attend schools which taught all aspects of ceramics and firing. Since 2017 I have pursued my love of ceramics full-time.Living in Upper Wensleydale, I am drawn to the dramatic landscape outside my workshop...

Ceramics was an adventure into clay and glaze, and I studied hard to be able to create the feeling I wanted. When I moved to England from Taiwan, I soon discovered a new range of English clays to explore. I came to England in 2003...

Bringing together raw and unrefined materials and incorporating them into the clay, he seeks to find the harmonious point between the rhythmic flow of the potter’s wheel and the disruptive and chaotic...
