  • Support 'HONG KONG kaleidoscope'!

    Sunday, Nov 10, 2013 6:20PM / Members only

    Together with my fellow Instagramers at HK InstaYay, we are running a fundraising campaign in order to show 'HONG KONG kaleidoscope' Exhibition at the upcoming Very Hong Kong Festival in December.

    'HONG KONG kaleidoscope' is a two-section photo exhibition by HK InstaYay members featuring snapshots of all things Hong Kong taken by an eclectic group with very diverse backgrounds, ages, nationalities and professions - showing the many facets of Hong Kong. A special section by Pete Lang shows the parts of Hong Kong that might soon be gone forever. We hope this exhibition could help in cultivating and increasing our appreciation of Hong Kong and its people.

    Being a totally non-commercial, non-profit, labour-of-love kind of a project, we need as much help as we can get. This fundraising system is all or nothing. If we couldn't reach the minimum goal within the set time, we wouldn't receive any funding at all! Support in any kind would be greatly appreciated and we have prepared some unique rewards for our backers.

    Remember, every little bit counts: no contribution is too small!

  • First firing in 2011: A New Work in Progress

    Monday, Feb 28, 2011 8:10PM / Members only

    I am so excited to have my kiln up and running again!
    Starting a new project with porcelain which is very challenging. It is a commissioned work for a residential mansion so I can't just create whatever pleases me. I have to also take into consideration my client's preferences, expectations and needs because she is the one who will look at the art work every day - not to mention that she is also the one who finances the work! Finding the right balance could be tricky, but I am hopeful :)

    Here are some snapshots from the first firing session. My kiln is small, it is a 'plug and play' top loading PotteryCrafts kiln called the 'Mercury'. It is capable to fire up to 1300ºC and is programmable with the electric controller. Now, the porcelain pieces are very thin, so to prevent slumping/shape deformation, I had to support them with kaolin powder. They are fired to 1280ºC and I am pleased with the result. It did take a lot of patience and effort to scrape the kaolin powder off of the fired pieces and it got somewhat stuck to them. All had to be done very very carefully because of the delicate and intricate shapes of the pieces. I think it took me almost 2 hours just to clean up a couple of the porcelain pieces! Next time I'll try different supporting method.

    Well, this is just one of the many components that I will have to make to form the actual work which will constructed out of many pieces like this one. Each will be handmade one by one, so each piece will be different - although they all will still be within the same concept. More firing sessions are lining up!

    BTW, the greatest thing about this project is that working on it has given me inspirations for my next personal project!

  • Just My Type

    Monday, Feb 21, 2011 3:42PM / Members only

    This is my latest favorite book! I regretted when I finished reading it because I wanted to read more! It is full of little stories about all those fonts whose name and look are so familiar and yet I didn’t know much if at all about their designer or how they came about into being. It is like reading about your dear old friends – so familiar – that you are so fond of, and yet knew very little about their life and history. It’s like getting to know your friends – that is, your favorite fonts – better. There are struggles, impressive feats and funny bits. You’d respect real font designers even more.

    Simply put, it is entertaining and informative, a delight to behold too – set in beautiful fonts! If you like fonts, enjoy working with them, then get this book. You won’t regret it.

    (Thanks to my thoughtful husband who gifted this book to me :). He definitely knows me very well!).

  • Balance

    Sunday, Feb 20, 2011 2:28PM / Members only

    ‘Balance’ is my word for 2011. It might look like a simple word, but it is a loaded one – very tricky to achieve, and even more difficult to maintain. Because guess what? It is not a static condition in which once you achieve it, you then could passively keep it. No. It is fluid, always on the move. It is something that you have to keep on nurturing in everything you do.

    For myself, balance means to focus more into the process of things – of doing, of working, of creating, of living. That is, rather than focusing on the end result... Taking my time immersing myself in THE moment without worrying about the passing of time. Easier said than done, obviously. But we can always try, can't we!

    I like your work too. Hope to see them upclose in future. One of my hobby is Visiting galleries and museums. But I'm not a hard cord art person. I like abstract art mostly and installation too.

    Sometimes it is necessary to be reclusive in order to be creative, yet in due season, that creativity will blossom.
