Wood-firing Ceramics Exhibition by Artist Huang Da An

Ceramic art works are with the beauty and philosophy of life: an embodiment of passion, endeavor, and respect of impermanence .

Huang Da An, a self-taught artist, renovates the traditional wood-firing ceramic art with his passion and decade-long experiment. Huang discovered a new way of using the traditional wisdom to translate the ancient art into the contemporary mode of art that resonate with the aesthetic ideals of this era—the deepest meaning Huang’s work would want to convey.

We look forward to sharing this beauty of nature brought by the harmonious collaboration between human and the Nature with a series of local and international exhibitions.

Huang Da An was born in 1950 and served as a grade school teacher for most of his life. During his spared time, he dedicated himself to hiking in the mountains in Taiwan, appreciating the sublimity of the wild nature and experiencing the change of the surroundings—as the altitude reaches higher, temperature drops, vegetation changes; once cloudless, later misty were the mountains. The unpredictability itself is a beauty.

When Huang encountered the ceramic art and decided to master it, he began to think how to bring the transient beauty of the mountains into his work, and subsequently to the day to day life of others. For him, the wood-firing ceramic art is the way to crystallise the magnificience of the forest and wild life in his mind: a combination of earth and wood. Through the transforming wood fire, the colours and patterns of nature are infused to the day to day objects—yet, still a wonder of nature.
