Chinese blue-and-white porcelain is renowned for its distinctive appearance, which is achieved by painting intricate designs onto a white clay body with cobalt oxide before firing at high temperatures. To complement our current exhibition, Potted and Painted: The Production and Technical Development of Underglaze Blue Porcelain in China, UMAG is offering a blue-and-white ceramic painting workshop. Our instructor will demonstrate the process of colouring ceramics and guide you through a hands-on session where you can use cobalt blue to paint on the bisque.
All materials will be provided. Firing (HK$50—in addition to the registration fee) is mandatory for safety reasons. Participants will retrieve their finished work from the instructor’s studio. Further information regarding the schedule and logistics will be provided during the class.
Horace Hon Siu Chung earned his Bachelor of Arts (Fine Art) from the joint programme offered by the Hong Kong Art School and RMIT University in 2019. He is deeply interested in studying the cultural values of Guangcai and blue-and-white pottery—both forms of Hong Kong intangible cultural heritage—in order to transform traditional art into contemporary art. By examining the relationship between old and new cultures, and the possibilities that arise from this analysis, he reinterprets these elements into his own distinctive style.
