The artist (in red) with her curator, Ms. Valerie C. Doran, in front of her artworks that have inspired the birth of FHUNG artistmade copper jewellery, exhibited at Hanart TZ Gallery, Hong Kong, 2016.
Each one-of-a-kind copper jewellery you find at FHUNG artistmade is an authentic work by the artist Lie Fhung, employing a special process that she first developed for her artworks, ‘Life Force : Terrain’ series, shown below. The shimmering oxidised colours appear with varying undertones and shades under different lighting conditions and viewing angles, so the pieces might appear mysteriously deep or dazzlingly brilliant.
Lie Fhung creates each jewellery by hand, one by one - with love. Each piece is totally unique; hand-shaped by her from scratch without any casting or mould used. The surface has been coated with protective layer to arrest the meticulously nurtured oxidation effect. To keep their precious look, clean them after each use by gently wiping them with soft damp cloth and pat dry.
An award-winning artist based in Hong Kong, Lie Fhung was born and grew up in Indonesia. Art making is her way to contemplate and to bear witness to personal stories. For her, the act of creating is a matter of existence and survival. To realise her artistic visions, she explores whatever medium speaks to her; from porcelain to paint, metal, fabric, and digital prints, which are often presented in the form of installations. You can view her artworks here.
Fhung simply loves to create. She enjoys inventing, designing, up-cycling and crafting things that she can use in her daily life. Her jewellery is one of such things. She also designs digital scrapbooking products which you can find here.
