Tsung-Lung Tsai is a prominent ceramic artist based in Taipei. His work has been exhibited throughout Taiwan, Korea, and Japan and is included in many important ceramics collections in the region. In Mr. Tsai's series, Temperature of Tranquility, he has attempted to visualize his own sense of temperature and enable viewers to sense directly the inner quality exuded by the work; a warm, tranquil intimacy. He is particularly interested in process of firing, which itself changes clay to pottery, and sees wood-firing as an expressive form unto itself.
