ARTISTS / Ray Chan See-Kwong

Screen Shot 2020-08-22 at 11.35.45

Ray Chan See-kwong regards himself as a ‘clay experimentalist’ who enjoys exploring the characteristics of clay from various perspectives. His eclectic works are imbued with historical, cultural and everyday elements; he is eager to challenge the status quo of ceramic art through unconventional materials and processes.
