Chiu-i Wu | Taiwan Sculpture Artist | Ceramic

"When I was little, it was with pen and paper that I felt expressive.. drawing and drawing without thought.. The feeling never left me, and I graduated to paint, then finally to ceramics..
I developed my art and ceramics in my home country, Taiwan and exhibited my first work in Taipei. I loved it.. but always had a hard time, when asked about my work.. I have no deep meanings. Not ones that I recognise anyway! I just produce from my heart, sensing when what I'm creating begins to feel right.
Ceramics was an adventure into clay and glaze, and I studied hard to be able to create the feeling I wanted. When I moved to England, I brought many glaze recipes, but soon discovered a new range of English clays to explore. I came to England in 2003... I can feel my love of English summers, blackbirds and sheep touching my heart and influencing my work. I now exhibit in both countries. I never use moulds.. all my work is hand built with great care for quality, and all my paintings are original. I hope you enjoy it as much as I love creating it.."
