ReCheng Tsang (b. 1967) works primarily with porcelain, creating site-specific installations and smaller sculptures. Previously, she was the co-director of the Oakland Art Gallery and was a lecturer in the Ceramics department at the California College of the Arts from 2006 - 2011. After two years as an apprentice at two ceramic studios in Tokyo and Kanazawa, Japan she formed the technical foundation of her art practice. Her current work consists of up to several hundred and sometimes thousands of thin porcelain pieces. Each piece is rolled, pinched, pulled, torn, or otherwise manipulated by hand, then composed within a pre-defined grid to explore the intrinsic qualities of porcelain and create work that is tactile and sensual.Read Full Bio
