Fang was deeply influenced by Chinese philosophy, especially the Tao Te Ching. The idea behind I-FANG is that “the boundary that can be determined is not the eternal boundary”, which derives from the understanding of the famous quote by Laozi: “The Tao that is utterable is not the eternal Tao”. Design defines a convertible and ambiguous relationship among various boundaries, once the existing boundary gets blurred, a new boundary will emerge.
Fang’s methods are different from the traditional pursuit of porcelain: the exquisite glazing, painting, carving; everything needs to be perfect and avoids any mistake. Fang instead embrace the ‘accidents’, letting the material speaks for itself. There is no glazing, and with the smoked effect, the process is mostly uncontrollable; hence every piece is unique.
