ARTISTS / SARA TSE

Artworks exhibited at TOUCH Ceramics:

Sara Tse has obtained the Master of Fine Arts, Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology University, Australia. She  is a ceramic artist living and working in Hong Kong. Her crafted work presents an examination of the fragility of things and everyday experiences with delicacy. Instead of giving the porcelain objects reverence traditionally, Tse tends to challenge conventional concepts through her sculptural gloves, socks, and sweaters. Her transformation of common objects into porcelain and clay often elicit unconscious memories from childhood to motherhood as well as the present to the future. Her recent works also concentrate on narratives of Chinese diaspora, disclosing a deeper autobiographical content. 

Her work is in a number of museum institutions internationally, including the Queensland Art Gallery, Australia; Ceramic Art Foundation, Japan; and the Hong Kong Museum of Art, China.
