Chiu-I-Wu |Chiu-I-Wu – Art in Clay


When I was little, it was with pen and paper that I felt expressive.. drawing and drawing without thought.. The feeling never left me, and I graduated to paint, then finally to ceramics..

I developed my art and ceramics in my home country, Taiwan and exhibited my first work in Taipei. I loved it.. but always had a hard time, when asked about my work.. I have no deep meanings. Not ones that I recognise anyway! I just produce from my heart, sensing when what I’m creating begins to feel right.

Ceramics was an adventure into clay and glaze, and I studied hard to be able to create the feeling I wanted. When I moved to England, I brought many glaze recipes, but soon discovered a new range of English clays to explore. I came to England in 2003… I can feel my love of English summers, blackbirds and sheep touching my heart and influencing my work. I now exhibit in both countries. I don’t use moulds.. all my work is hand built with care for quality, and all my paintings are original. I hope you enjoy my work as much as I love creating it..
