Johnson Tsang Sculpts a Dragon Strangling a Porcelain Vase

 

Johnson Cheung-shing Tsang is a Hong Kong sculptor specializing in ceramics, stainless steel sculpture and public artworks. Tsang’s works mostly employ realist sculptural techniques with a surrealist imagination, integrating the two elements, human beings and objects, into creative themes.

In a recent sculpture entitled A Painful Pot, Tsang wanted to create a porcelain sculpture that expressed how he felt about his country. The detail is astonishing and you can get a great sense of the intricate craftsmanship involved in the process photos below. In the comments on his blog, Tsang says the scariest and most exciting part is opening the kiln.

Tsang will be having his first solo exhibition at the Taiwan Yingge Ceramics Museum from 7 Dec 2013 to 19 Jan 2014. ‘A Painful Pot’ will be one of the sculptures featured at the exhibit.
