Lecture by Wallace Chan March 9. 2020.
A technological tour de force – that is what Wallace Chan’s jewellery is. The pieces are large, colorful and studded with hundreds of precious stones. What makes Chan unique is that he has invented a series of techniques and materials all his own, like unbreakable porcelain and working with titanium. SIERAAD Art Fair and the Maastricht Academy of Fine Arts and Design arranged for Wallace Chan to give a lecture in Maastricht, Monday March 9.
Chan related that, as a boy, he learned to carve stones. After years of experimenting and using a polishing method all his own he managed to create the reflection of an image in the stone: the so-called Wallace Cut. As a child he shared a simple plastic spoon with other children at table. He was more interested in the sound made by the spoons of the adults, but broke his grandmother’s spoon and cut himself. His fascination for porcelain had been born.
At TEFAF, also in Maastricht, the inventive settings and bright colors could be seen in real life.
