Chun Liao was born in Taiwan and came to the UK to study in the 1990s. She holds an MA in Ceramics and Glass from the Royal College of Art, where she also undertook an M. Phil research project in 1999. Her vessels are generically similar in shape, but never identical. Instead she develops a seemingly limitless range of possibilities through subtle nuances of form, colour and detail. Liao emphasises the importance of intuition in her work, explaining that, ‘sometimes they originate from a thought, a piece of music, a vision or a simple line of words. However most of the time they are not rational, designed or planned. I just simply need and have to make them.’
Examples of Liao's work can be found in numerous notable international collections, including the Crafts Council Collection, Victoria and Albert Museum, The British Museum and the Metropolitan Museum in New York.
