Considered as one of the wonders in Chinese traditional culture, the art of making purple clay teapots has a special place in the long history of ceramic-making in China which can be traced back as far as the mid-Northern Song Dynasty, about 1000 years ago. It has since matured into a fine art following the improvement of the people’s living standards and material wealth.

The three purple clay artists in this exhibition were brought up in families that have produced pottery for generations. They inherited the orthodox teaching of the art and combined the spirit of contemporary artists and traditional techniques, creating a series of potteries that are amusing and innovative, yet maintaining the gist of traditions. In 2009, the trio met a renowned Hong Kong calligrapher Mr. Lam Yut Hang, and they were highly inspired by Mr. Lam’s ingenious knowledge and skill that eventually led to the idea of organising this exhibition which combines the art of pottery-making and calligraphy.

In this exhibition, Mr. Lam will exhibit approaching 80 pieces of calligraphic works and more than 50 pieces of Mr. Xu Yi, Mr. Xiong Jiangping and Mdm. Li Huifang’s purple clay teapots bearing Mr. Lam’s calligraphy. This exhibition allows art lovers a chance to appreciate the masterpieces with a different flair.
