A Painful Pot

What would you do with a thrown pot?

This is a thrown porcelain pot. I am going to create an sculpture to express how I feel about my country

How about a ceramic sculpture?

I love to feel the clay from inside

What is this?

  13. bonsaiprelude 說:

    WOW that is absolutely amazing! When I saw the first pictures I thought it would just be the dragon wrapped around the pot, but I love how you made it look like the dragon is squeezing the pot. Is it for sale? Probably too expensive for me though 🙂

  14. Dear Mister Tsang, just came across this beautiful art work on facebook. The mystic symbolism, power and restrained anger of the dragon in combination with the strangulated vase as if it is going to burst resambles so much of China as I know it… i am really impressed by this work of art. Modern with the classic material, feel and techniques… Thousend Compliments!

    • Johnson Tsang 說:


      Thank you very much for your compliments!

      “A Painful Pot" is for sale. Yet, I try not to sell it at the moment because I’m going to have a solo exhibition at the Taiwan Yingge Ceramics Museum during 7 Dec 2013 to 19 Jan 2014. This work has been selected as one of the exhibits. If you wish to purchase “A Painful Pot", would you consider buying it after my solo show?

      This solo show will feature my latest creations. I will post more of the exhibits on my blog and Facebook after the show has started.

      If you find it is not too late for you, I can provide you the price of “A Painful Pot" during the exhibition.

    The entire project cannot be stated in words as there are no words that do this piece of work justice. It speaks loudly to many people differently as any art should. Clearly, this is art by any definition and as a one-of-a-kind, makes it even more priceless. Thank you for sharing your talents, ideas and hard work.
