Working primarily with porcelain, ReCheng Tsang creates site-specific installations and smaller sculptures. The work consists of up to several hundred sometimes thousands of thin porcelain pieces. Each piece is rolled, pinched, pulled, torn, or otherwise manipulated by hand, then composed within a pre-defined grid. She explores the intrinsic qualities of porcelain, malleable and impressionistic, to create work that is tactile and sensual. She is also interested in the dichotomous relationship between the porcelain’s hardness and permanence, and the resulting work which appears to be delicate, ephemeral and in motion. She works monochromatically, often leaving the porcelain unglazed, to allow the attention to focus on the subtle shifts in form, color, and texture.
ReCheng welcomes collaborations and works with galleries, designers, and private clients on commissions and site specific projects. Her work is in private collections and she exhibits nationally. She lives and works in Berkeley, California.
