Artist Spotlight: Yu Jui Yang – Merging Tradition and Modernity in Ceramic Teaware

A Journey Through Art and Craftsmanship

Award-winning Taiwanese contemporary ceramist Yu Jui Yang, 楊育睿, has earned accolades in several international exhibitions, including the German Nassauischen Savings Bank New Ceramic Artist Award and the Spanish El Vendrell International Ceramic Biennale. Yang focused on creating ceramic sculptures before embarking on his journey in teaware. His works, with their organic shapes, carried his intuition and subconscious, infused with an undercurrent of ambiguity and subtlety.

Embracing the Symbolism of Nature and Memory

Yang's approach to ceramics is deeply personal, stemming from childhood memories and experiences with nature, picture books, and animated works. "The images transform into symbolic forms, concepts, and symbols," Yang explains. "These are changeable, soft, and combinable, constantly remodeled, transformed, and reorganized." — Excerpt from "The Artist," December 2017, Issue 511, Zhuang Xiu Ling.

Yu Jui Yang's ceramic teaware collection showcases restraint, minimalism, and unique characteristics. It's not mere suppression but rather aligning the practicality of the vessel with artistic vision. The tall tea cups, teapots, and tea caddies blend ancient, modern, Eastern, and Western elements, each distinct and thoughtfully designed piece.
