Pottery vessels and clay sculptures. In some case the clay sculptures are mounted on wood with pipes as their supports. The potter’s wheel is used for vessels. Angela Hung’s vessels are often altered after the initial form has been thrown on the wheel.
Digital and Graphic Design
My goal is to capture an image in such a way that it will stir the emotions of those viewing it. It is not my desire to have everyone viewing my work to have the same reaction but just to have a reaction. And I enjoy getting the chance to discuss what the image means to them.
