Entry Description

The material uses a self-developed metal alloy to convert the physical effects of the metal material to make the metal brittle and cracked. The result of mixing different formulations of metal affects the texture of the material, making it unique. And simulate the damage and cracking of buildings and remnants, by destroying the objects and retaining their traces, restoring the incomplete residual state, and comparing the formation of discarded fragments, everything must have its own origin. I use these textures to follow the intuition to make what it naturally to become the unique pieces.


Studying at the Graduate Institute of Applied Arts in National Tainan University of Arts, majoring in metalsmithing.Graduated from the department of Art and Design of National Tsing-Hua University in 2015. Between the exploration and experiment of the metal texture, He was fascinated by the physical state and chemical reaction of metal. Just like human skin, which will cause aging and wrinkles, it is a kind of material that can breathe, and he also like to continually experiment and break through the boundaries of metal processing through such characteristics.
