抱著對陶瓷的熱誠，她畢業後創立自己的品牌Amanda Tong Ceramics，自主設計及創作。
Amanda is trained in Ceramic Design at Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design. With a real passion for the subject, Amanda graduated with a First Class Honours and went straight on to establish her own label as a ceramics designer-maker. She is currently based in Hong Kong.
Born in the East while educated in the West, Amanda finds inspiration in cultural crossovers. Her classic marble collection is inspired by the Yin-Yang Food Therapy – one of the most fundamental concepts in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
Each of the ceramic pieces is hand-thrown by mixing together black and white porcelain, creating a material metaphor that symbolizes the unique mix of Yin-Yang energies within our bodies – specifically how the opposing energies are constantly evolving to find balance and co-exist.
In the ‘Thousand Faces & Sake Wares Exhibition’, Amanda created sake cups of varying black and white shades to form a gradient grid display. By doing so, the audience are invited to create their own Yin and Yang palette, and encouraged to embark on a journey of finding balance.
這次在 【千面‧酒皿珍藏展】中，《凝》是 Manho 最新的酒皿作品。
Young Hong Kong ceramic artist Manho Cheung received his Bachelor of Arts in Visual Arts from Hong Kong Baptist University. Inspired by the interaction between users and daily utensils, his work pursues the unadorned texture of ceramics.
Manho’s latest work “Converge”, a series of sake cups with perfect lines, demonstrates the unique texture and layers of clay. Grooves will be seen under the golden light when sake ripples in the cup, attracting viewers’ gaze.
Without glaze on the pieces, “Converge” presents the ordinary and raw texture of clay. The plain surfaces and the golden light inside the cups formed a pleasing contrast of simplicity and luxury.
Yung Yuk Ming, Michael was born in Hong Kong. He is an indigenous village people of the New Territories, growing up at the rural area of the Sai Kung Town. Since 2015, Michael started practising pottery with Hong Kong Ceramist. Lai Chi Kong, Alan at Arthome Studio. Local clay and ash glazes are part of his artworks features. Most of the ashes are collected from his neighbours who still do wood firing for their cooking. Building it up a bit by bit with the local materials, he always wishes to create functional ware that’s really made in Hong Kong.
Lau Yat Wai graduated in Visual Arts, Hong Kong Baptist University, Hong Kong
I believe memory attaches itself to objects, especially be present in a personal living space. They have a quality of intimacy so every object possesses metaphorical significance beyond its material objective reality. I feel that the paper and plastic functional wares are becoming more industrialized and universal, and the ceramics which full of life, history and culture are becoming more minor. I turned this inspiration into my own creation, making a series of ceramics that capture the wrinkle paper cup texture.
