Ting-Ying Gallery brings a dynamic and highly influential mission to the world of contemporary craft by stimulating ongoing dialogues between East and West, tradition and innovation, function and aesthetics. The gallery invites artists to grapple with the enigma of how they can question the perceptions of the past while evolving new work which manifests a strong sense of continuity with the inspiration of history.
The gallery is committed to supporting established and emerging artists, especially those from the Chinese diaspora who are fascinated by diverse craft and design disciplines. By re-discovering their heritage and craft-making traditions, these artists marry materials which have been used for centuries, with innovative new techniques. The resulting artworks celebrate the beauty and precision of craftsmanship today.
Ting-Ying Gallery was founded in 2016 by Peter Ting, a ceramic and product designer, and Ying Jian, who brings his wealth of knowledge and understanding of the context of porcelain. The central focus is Blanc de Chine white porcelain, which has been produced in Dehua, China since the fourteenth century. With its rich history and the unparalleled finesse and intricacy in the making of these pieces, Blanc de Chine's living craft tradition continues to thrive today with an enriched creativity.
Whilst introducing distinguished Chinese artists and their exceptional contemporary Blanc de Chine to a global audience, the gallery also provides opportunities for international artists to immerse themselves in local culture and craftsmanship through a residency programme at Ting-Ying Studio in Dehua. Ting-Ying Gallery also highlights and rigorously re-visits important early works by established living artists within the field of craft and design.
Ting-Ying Gallery is passionate about engaging a new audience with the exciting work that is emerging from the craft and design world. Through international art and design fairs, exhibitions and museum collaborations, the gallery presents collectors and institutions with a curated selection of new and challenging work that radiates intention, integrity and a redefinition of what is expected from craft and design.
