Our founder, Henry Shen, was once a graduate in electrical engineering. After moving to the States, he found interest in ceramics and decided to study in the field of art and design. He had taken classes at Parsons, Hunter, and Alfred University, and obtained an MFA from the University of Hartford, under full scholarship. He studied ceramics under some well-known professors, including Susan Peterson, Walter Hall, John Rolfing, Michael Lucero, Val Cushing and Kim Dickey.

As one of the pioneers in the field, his public installations of art and architectural projects can be seen in many places, both at home and abroad. His artworks have gained very high recognition and awards, collected by a great number of museums and galleries in Taiwan. One notable example is the National Museum of History. Additionally, his works are also collected internationally by private collectors.
