Intro
The work of Junchang Lu leaves me breathless, as when something astonishes you. The surprise comes from seeing something which is simultaneously extremely ancient and contemporary: one gets the feeling that the forms, the material and the colour in front of our eyes, and what our hands touch, are timeless. One feels displaced because Lu's work embodies oriental and occidental art, the past and the contemporary, the presence and the absence all at once. It incorporates a visionary line, which speaks continuously of space and time in a universal language where his work is knowledge, even at first sight, facing this presence-absence, this persistent and light scent so close to desire , that it takes your breath for good.
/ Lucia Massei. Director of Alchimia Contemporary Jewellery School in Florence.

琢/zhuo/

琢 /zhuo/ is a Chinese word specially used for describing the process of jade carving and polishing, it also has a metaphorical meaning of transforming something which is common to something that is special and precious.
My work is mainly about the transformation from non-precious to precious in the metaphysical sense.
As a former industrial jewelry designer, I made the turnaround to my contemporary jewelry journey.
I have dedicated myself to bottle glass, a common material which gives me a strong visual feeling of jade, my cultural origin.
During the process of transformation, I put love, care, time, effort and also risk into my piece.
I hope this kind of concentrated energy can attract people to touch it, to wear it, to feel it, wondering "what is jewelry for me?"
