ARTISTS / Li Ia-Wen
Artworks exhibited at TOUCH Ceramics:
Li Ya-Wen does not enjoy the process of throwing and repairing pottery. She chooses to present her works in their most original form, shaping them by hand with a solid and continuous process. Therefore, her works mainly focus on practical ceramics. The containers she personally molds appear lightweight in appearance but have a thick and delicate texture when touched. In terms of theme selection, she often incorporates elements from nature, transforming the textures of plants into impressed patterns on cups and plates. The color presentation contrasts blue pigment against the white background of the clay body. Through unintentional variations, she preserves the traces of handcrafting on the surfaces of her works. Each piece is naturally formed, showcasing a unique vitality.
