素謠陶瓷 @ 童窯 - 圓 缺 I 金繼 I 花器
SOWTALE CERAMICS @ TYC - Wax and Wane I KINTSUGI | FLOWERWARE
The natural cycle of the moon, Wax and Wane, reminds us of the way we work with clay. We often relate potters as “circle makers”. We always tell our new friends in the ceramic world, “Sitting in front of clay, you can produce as much work as you want when you are in good condition but you can never imagine what you are going to get if your body is not ready”. It is usual to see cracked “circles” during the process. Unlike the natural phenomenon, the Wax and Wane in our ceramic making journey are quite difficult to predict.
To preserve the original beauty of the works, we went to learn traditional ways to repair the broken ones. We want to puzzle the broken pieces into a new form of “circle” (Wax).
In this exhibition, Sowtale wishes to show their ceramic making journey to you by using Kintsugi works and flower wares. The repaired ones with new life could be perfect Wax, but it could also remain its original statues. It is up to your mind to determine if they are your Wax or your Wane.

素謠由英文 Sow 和 Tale 組成，意味著把我們的故事會像播種一樣傳開去。
Sowtale is the combination of "Sow" and "Tale", meaning that our stories will spread like seeding.
Sowtale is a collaboration of two very distinctive souls - one flies around the world for his work, while the other stays in Hong Kong for her art. We look abroad for artistic inspirations and transform these ideas into tailor-made products for our local customers. That's how our "Art and Life" begins.
Our ceramic products are designed and hand-crafted in Hong Kong. We care about each step: from choosing the clay body to glazing, which leads to good quality. Experiencing the world with different senses is indispensable to us, so we will try our best to collaborate with other brands and parties in order to bring you new experiences in the future!
By reading our stories and using our products, we wish to bring calm to your daily life or create your own life rhythm. Sowtale values each independent with different thoughts and ideas, if you are one of these people, feel free to reach us!
