Chiu Chien-ching Landscape Inspired Ceramic Works



Surrounded by the ocean all around, the coastline of Taiwan is highly diversified.


The Jialuo Waterfall Series reflects on my deep connection with the ocean since my childhood. As it took me the longest time to create, it is my favorite work.


The Cliff Series embodies the high-hanging cliffs in my mind that keep negotiating with nature.


The Basalt Series depicts the geographic formation of the Penghu Islands and Islets off Taiwan.


The process of the volcano eruption: as the volcano erupted, once the volcanic lava shot out

and started running, it condensed immediately.
