In the second half of the twentieth century, clay as the medium of creation had a qualitative change after the Second World War. “Ceramics” or “pottery” is unable to describe the medium when it expresses artistic concept. Thus the speaker, Ching Yuan CHANG uses ” Clay Expression ” as a term for contemporary art form of using clay. Anything connected to the division of labour in the traditional ceramic making process has the possibility to be been subverted, or re-encoded. Reviewing the value of the craft, the purpose of firing and the rationality of the art concept become the most significant core in the spectrum of contemporary clay expression.
