Ceramic Cupping – A Sensory Journey through a Ceramic Cup

This project explores how the shape of a ceramic cup affects taste perception. Unique dual-taste ceramic cups, designed using 3D printing technology, offer at least two different drinking experiences in one small cup to challenge our senses. Collaborating with Sinbad Coffee Roasters, we enhance the specialty coffee experience by experimenting with cup designs and various coffee beverages. Visitors can even customize and 3D print their own cups. Join us in exploring how cup shape influences taste perception and creates lasting memories through ceramics.

Artist – Ray Chan

Ray Chan See-kwong holds degrees from the University of Cambridge, UK, and the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology University (in collaboration with Hong Kong Art School). He identifies as a 'clay experimentalist' and explores clay's characteristics from multiple perspectives. Chan's artworks integrate historical, cultural, and everyday elements, challenging conventional ceramic art through unconventional materials and processes. He has participated in artist-in-residence programs in Japan, Korea, and Estonia. Currently an assistant professor at Hong Kong Baptist University, Chan is a member of the International Academy of Ceramics (IAC) and Chairman of the Contemporary Ceramic Society (H.K.) (2019-2023).
