  • Eugene CHUNG first discovered working with clay when an art teacher taught him to hand-build with clay at his high school. He pursued his further education in the United Kingdom due to the shortage of ceramic courses in Hong Kong. After graduation, Eugene moved to an isolated former industry hub - Silvertown, a borough of London, surrounded by derelict and dilapidated refineries linked with intertwining pipelines. The aromas of the few remaining industrial plants in the area stimulate his childhood memories of observing his father crafting and reassembling car components.

     

    As the son of a garage owner and mechanist from Hong Kong, the elements of shapes and forms of machinery alongside his father’s craftsmanship subconsciously accustomed him to mechanical rhythms, structures and the sharp-sweet smelling gas in the air. These inspired him to make vessels with the lid to capture the purity of designed components and interpret his inner feelings by painting the surface with on-glaze enamel and colour glaze.
