Craftsmanship, born and enduring in times, carries the memories of life in each era. While keeping abreast of time, multiple materials had been alloyed in the creation, the appearance of ceramic is no longer limited. In this day and age, we seek the balance between possibilities and techniques. In the past few years, Franz Rising Star Project saw many phenomenal creativity in artworks that particularly came from students. Therefore, in 2020, we provided a platform exclusively for graduate students. These wonderful creations have been published in the column on the official website of FRSP. In 2021, we will continue the column as last year. We hope to see the creativity in the young generation by sharing their pieces and concepts. Sign up now and get more inspiration from others' works of art.

In our 2021 Online Grad Exhib, we are excited to witness the constantly-evolving creativity of young or early ceramic artists incorporating a wide array of materials into their artwork. Through combining different mediums, waste objects are endowed with new meanings. Ashes can also symbolize a new life, while scrap pewters can turn into a unique substance. Ceramics are not only objects but also carry one’s memories. Scroll down to explore infinite material possibilities from this-year graduates working in clay.
