Ryan Cheng Pottery
Ryan learned ceramics at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology University (co-presented by Hong Kong Art School) graduating in 2016 with a Bachelor of Arts (Fine Art) in Ceramics. His art pieces have been exhibited in galleries in Hong Kong and have been collected by the Hong Kong Heritage Museum and other private collectors.
While working on his art, Ryan also produces small batches of functional ware for sale. In 2018 he started Ryan Cheng Pottery to feature his pottery work.
Coming from Hong Kong and having a background in industrial design, Ryan's interest in ceramics was naturally drawn to the modern studio pottery style of 20th century artists like Lucie Rie, Hans Coper and Walter Keeler. These artists continued a long tradition of ceramic techniques while keeping them relevant to their time by using the craft to express their own individual aesthetics. Inspired by these artists and his own passion to create, Ryan continues to explore his craft in order to produce pottery that is new and unique.

Les Beatitudes (LBA) is set up to support women who want to and need to work in a more flexible arrangement and home environment. In the 1960s, many HK women took work home to make extra money whilst they looked after their children and elderlies. These opportunities are rare in modern HK. The products LBA designed are mainly items that can be produced in a small urban environment as some of these workers live in extremely cramped condition within the most challenging district in HK.
Our mission is to connect different groups to positively address social issues and support the underprivileged, environment and women through arts & crafts. We want to weave a Social Fabric that could bind together those who want to give with those in need. Via neckties, we rebuild relationships and ties among people in Hong Kong.
