Design Series began in 2013 as a creative pursuit. With clay as his medium, Tung Chiang explores a singular subject each year that culminates in a show and sale of his work. Throughout its eight years, several of his ideas have informed Heath's everyday product lines, from new shapes to dynamic glazes.
Each pot sings a tune. Sealed inside is a clay bead, sometimes two, even three. The beads range in size, and the forms are unique, so every listener hears their own song. Listening with your hands, the path of the bead reveal its shape. Listening with your ears triggers a re-centering, reminding us of the voice within—a constant, when nothing else is. This is the intent of Design Series Eight.
