Theory and Practice of Chinese Traditional Ceramic Art
My world belongs to the tradition. I teach Traditional Ceramics, and I believe that true beauty comes when it’s stimulated naturally, when dealing with the people, and when making a friend in our daily life. I hope that my words carry traditional thoughts, contemporary sense, and a natural and simple emotion. I hope that my words can be understood by the public, used by them and become their friends.
