In her ceramics experience, Eva found her clay in the banks
of the stream, in the woods of Fort Motte,
South Carolina, at age 5. She began to mold some little figures
and farm animals.
As an adult, Eva studied with Peter Volkaus, William Lau
and Ka Kwong Hui who became her husband
for 23 years in 1980. It was in these combinations of influences
that shape her ceramics today:
The freedom of Volkaus, the lyricism of William Lau and the
genius of the wheel-thrown form
from Ka Kwong Hui. After traveling to China in 1993 on a Geraldine
Dodge Foundation grant,
she was able to spend time working in the fine art section
of the Jingdezhen Factory for a summer,
absorbing the fine arts in the oldest porcelain factory.
Today, Eva works with underglaze and low fire work. Ceramic
figures enhance the rim
of the wheel-thrown pieces as they interact with each other
creating their narrative stories.
