The potter’s wheel is the starting point of his creative practice. The current theme of his work has its influence in a song he wrote about sitting at a pond on a bright starry night. From that song, he has drawn a memory of tranquillity. Japanese gardens were designed for recreation, aesthetic pleasure, contemplation and meditation. This led him to the idea of using Japanese gardens to replicate the serenity he found at the pond that night.
The placement of oriental designs is the prime focus of each piece, complementing the shape and direction of the vessel, thus marrying the form with the surface.
The vessel is then Raku fired. With Raku, he tries to control the absorption of smoke into the vessel by using different methods of resist. With each piece, he wants to instil in each viewer a desire to hold the work, to investigate and explore the shape and surface quality.
