Daniel Chau

Daniel obtained a BA (Ceramics) from Royal Melbourne Information Technology University (co-presented with Hong Kong Art School) in 2007.

Daniel creates carefully sculpted porcelain vessels. The start of Daniel’s creative process begins with throwing. He is fascinated by the patterns and ongoing variations that emerge during this stage. The unique traces left on the forms evoke for him a sense of a path paved with the sedimentation of memory. Daniel likes to erase these unique tracks gently, then re-establish a new timeline through carving. He finds this sort of gradual evolution through craftsmanship an immersive and satisfying experience.

Daniel has exhibited his work at ceramic exhibitions in Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, Hungary, and the United Kingdom. He received third prize in the 2010 Tea Ware by Hong Kong Potters Competition and participated in the 2020 Taiwan Ceramics Biennale International Competition.
