Liao Guo Hua
Taiwanese ceramicist Liao Guo Hua’s ceramics career began in 1994 under the tutelage of master ceramicist Ye Xing You. Ten years later, he opened his own ceramic studio in Nantou, and two years after that, hand-built his own wood-fire kiln on a hillside close to his home.
Liao Guo Hua’s work range in character and form, and includes both glazed and unglazed pieces. The common thread linking them is the sparse aesthetic of his forms, and his careful allowance of fire and ash to transform the color and texture of those forms.
