Taiwanese artist Fan Yanting turns the creation of ceramic pieces into a deep expression of feelings by putting emotive little faces on his minimalist porcelains.
I empty my mind when I’m sculpting the human faces. I might plan the pottery shape and maybe where I’d like to position the face, but I don’t start with specific character designs in mind. (…) When people see different faces, they project their own ideas onto them. Maybe a face will remind someone of an old friend, a family member, or the coffee shop owner down the street. By leading viewers to experience everyday items that have different faces, I hope to explore this phenomenon in my work.Fan Yanting
