"Make it as simple as possible, but not simpler. -- Albert Einstein"
Wei Sun was born in Nanjing, China and has been living in Raleigh, NC since 1998. He learned the foundations of ceramics at Raleigh Pullen Art Center and NCSU Craft Center, and continues as a studio potter. Inspired by the Asian ceramics culture of his native region and the NC pottery tradition of his adopted home, Wei's works strike a balance between artistry and functionality. He firmly believes that each aspect of a pot - shape and form, decoration, glaze, function - serves a purpose and contributes equally to the piece as a whole, no more and no less.
All Wei's pottery are functional and intended for daily use. His kitchenware use food-safe glazes only, and are microwave, dishwasher and oven safe.
