Artist Diary | Weird and Wonderful: Li Lei's Porcelain Works

Li Lei shares his recent experiment with Chinese porcelain which he describes as "a medium for poetry" and a way to "look back to the past and look into the future".

In the latest Artist Diary, Li Lei shares with us a video journal of his experiments exploring poetic spirits in his creative process of "playing with porcelain".


To create a poetry with porcelain, Li Lei restructures traditional visual elements to form rhythmic artistic figures embodied with a natural spirituality.

 

Using an experimental approach of freeform shaping, and crafting and painting the porcelain by hand, Li discovers his very own poetic expression of life and rhythm of nature. The conflict between the traditional medium and the innovative approach gives a unique sense of intrigue.
