Hsin Chuen-Lin’s work is primarily thrown on the potter’s wheel and then occasionally altered by tearing, pinching or punching, and squeezing. Hsin Chuen-Lin chooses glazes that emphasize the strong thrown forms that characterize his work.  

Lin took his first ceramic class in 1981 with Rhan-Nung Wu a well-known Taiwanese potter. He moved to the United States in 1991 and settled in California. Originally inspired by eastern bronzes and ceramics, as Chuen-Lin’s career grew his influences shifted to American contemporary ceramics.
