Recheng Tsang

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, 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. Recheng received her B.A. from University of California in Berkeley, and her M.A. from University of Washington in Seattle. She previously was the co-director of the Oakland Art Gallery, and is a lecturer in the Ceramics Department at the California College of the Arts. She lives and works in Berkeley, California.
