Jong Ceramics produces hand-thrown minimal, durable and functional porcelain and stoneware ceramics that can be used in everyday life.
The collection is split into two parts:
(a) tea-ware that are influenced by traditional East Asian forms;
(b) reductive minimalist forms that emphasise the tactility of clay-as-material, in combination with glazes which play with the forms produced.
Experimentation is a deeply integrated part of the production process. A lot of time is dedicated to discovering and testing the seemingly endless possibilities of glaze, clay and forms, resulting with a high percentage of failure and a very low percentage of success. When something works, the reward is worth the struggle.
As all pieces are unique (no two pieces are the exactly identical), the pieces will become more meaningful with age, especially the more the pieces are used.
