Hsin-Chuen Lin was born in Taiwan and received his Master of Fine Art degree in ceramics from the University of Iowa. He moved to California in 1991 and is currently teaches at the Sunnyvale community center and Higher Fire Clay Studio in downtown San Jose and works as studio potter in Fremont, California. Clay has been Lin's passion for more than 30 years. His inspiration comes from Chinese Shan, Zhou dynasty's bronzes as well as Song dynasty's elegant pottery. He was also influenced by the American contemporary ceramics movement’s focus on the free and spontaneous making of pots. His beautiful vessels are first thrown, then torn, punched, squeezed, decorated, and finally fired, such as raku, saggar, gas and wood fire depending on what he wants to express. Hsin-Chuen Lin has shown his work nationally and internationally and has won many awards. His work has been featured in books and magazines and he sells to select U.S. galleries and at national juried craft shows. His work is in museums and private collections in Taiwan and the US.
