Name & Concept of Artwork 作品名稱與設計理念
Concept of artwork 設計理念:
The series began with a fascination of what the hand represents in its manifold, potent for Gerald as a maker having a hands on relationship with the material he works with. He often sees these hand motifs as self portraits to a degree, expressions of his hands drawn from habits, mannerisms and different relationships, be it of harmony or conflict concurrent to events personal and external in the past year.
Working closely with local craftspeople in Jingdezhen, Gerald has developed his contemporary, visual language engaging with the historical tradition of porcelain there, particularly drawn to the technique of carving.

The clear decoration is good, and the contrast between the glaze and the non glaze is sensuous.

I like the idea of using the surface to communicate in a very elegant way
