Wong Hiu Tung creates her artworks by using clay and glass, and she looks to experiment with combining clay and glass together in the future. Her projects are experimental in nature, she would like to explore the possibilities of clay—an unstable material. To break down and challenge the simple traditional forms of pottery to a complex form. From functional ware to non-functional pottery; from the past, present to the future. Her project aims to defy the simplicity and traditional pottery by altering the form in clay, glaze and raw mineral in unusual combinations. The features of clay in different stages are worth to explore. Clay, soft in stage one, becomes hard after firing in stage two. To do more experiments between stage one and stage two, she starts with the basic structural element of clay—the form— using point, line, plane and solid to build unusual potteries. Clay has infinite possibilities. In the past, Wong mainly focused on traditional techniques to make functional wares and she seldom has the chance to explore materialities. Since she was bored of following the traditional rules and repeating the same skills every time. She is motivated to discover the new forms and structures of clay.
The process is tracing, deconstruction, and re-forming the pottery from functional ware to non-functional. Keep re-working materials and objects to defy the simplicity and traditional pottery by altering the form in clay in unusual combinations. It is an experimental project.
