  • Catalogue Essay

    Taiwanese-English ceramist Chun Liao celebrates the intimacy of porcelain in her colorful, self-contained groupings of cylinders and pots. Trained at the Royal College of Art, London, Liao undermines the symmetry and polished lines characteristic of traditional porcelain works by subtly tearing the rims of the pots, dimpling their walls, or adding specks of gold. Such interventions are visible only to the most observant viewer, though, encouraging careful observation. Liao’s work is held in the permanent collections of the Victoria & Albert Museum, London, and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
