About

Sheng  inspirations are mainly from his relationship with the fluid nature of melting glass and  his fascination by the way  air bubbles can be  entrapped between layers of glass. He express these qualities in his drinking vessels where he also speaks about the drinking culture differences between Taiwan and UK and the relationship between an object’s functionality and it’s aesthetic.

Sheng is a Master in Ceramic & Glass at the Royal College of Art, London.
