Ji HUANG is an international glass artist whose work explores the changing dynamic between craft and culture through material experimentation. His work employs master techniques while reinventing traditional craft through cultural amalgamation.
Huang was intrigued by a Chinese lacquer technique called Xi Pi (literally 'rhinoceros skin'), and became captivated by the idea of generations of craftspeople accumulating technical knowledge and experience through different materials. His current work focuses on developing a Xi Pi-inspired glassmaking process to achieve a complex surface quality on his work. This process is extremely labour intensive, typically taking three to four weeks from start to finish.
