Frayed: For Frances

Item details

ReCheng Tsang created a simple art installation called Frayed for Frances Restaurant in San Francisco. The warmth of this intimate restaurant inspired her to create a series of work set on felt, a material that is at once soft and robust. This labor-intensive process of making each torn and manipulated strip of porcelain clay made her reminisce her childhood.

Porcelain sculptures and installations for interior spaces

"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."
