The Poem of Fire

by FU Shan-fong

Since the 1999 Jiji earthquake, ceramics artist LIN Jin-zhong has devoted himself to pursuing the mystery of "Yohen Tenmoku", a Song-dynasty technique lost for 800 years. He bases his experiments on modern science, but chooses the ancient yet unpredictable method of wood firing. For over a decade, more than 700 kiln firings have been done, all by himself.
