Su Xianzhong China, b. 1974

Born in 1974 in Dehua Fujian, Su Xianzhong studied Jingdezhen Ceramic Institute. He was born with the DNA of ceramics. His great-grand-father Su Xuejin, also known as Bo Ji Yu Ren, established the famous Yun Yu Porcelain Studio, and was awarded Gold Award at the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in San Francisco in 1915 for his porcelain plum-blossom tree. As the fourth generation from a long line of respected traditional porcelain sculptors' family, Su has established himself as one of the most influential artists in the contemporary Blanc de Chine. Over the last 30 years, he has pushed the boundaries of the materials and tradition constantly, creating a unique style with both essence of tradition and bold contemporary symbolic form. In 2018, Paper No.1 by Su Xianzhong was collected permanently by Victoria and Albert Museum in London, UK.
