Meet the Ceramist

Ming Qian Chen

Like all great ceramicists, Chen is particular about his media: his porcelain clay comes from Japan, white clay from China, and red clay from nearby Miaoli. Despite his Japanophile roots, he reached his present style through experimentation and an inner dialogue with Taiwanese artistic virtues. Each piece in this ‘Valence’ selection will gain a unique patina with frequent love and use. His work rarely appears anywhere outside of Taiwan—never outside of East Asia. We are so pleased to share Chen’s work with you.
