Born in Tainan, Taiwan in 1957, Huang, Kun-lin graduated from the Department of Fine Art of National Hsinchu University of Education with a master's degree. He started with a specialization in ink, and because of ink creation, he got to know about calligraphy and then tried to make calligraphy three-dimensional. He combined calligraphy with ceramic art thereafter. HUANG integrates the art of ink, calligraphy and pottery, and uses the knife to replace the brush. His characters carving is like writing calligraphy with the brush. He pays attention to the structure of the characters, the movement and the style of the brushwork, and creates a variety of unique oriental pottery products.
Compared with the pottery works produced by other kilns, Huang deliberately retains its natural, simple and attractive appearance without the use of glaze. The "pottery stone" series uses clay without modifying and grinding to imitate the texture of rock. The pottery stone with his calligraphy, ink or color becomes a piece of pottery engraved work of joy and elegance.
