Design Creative Of The Week: Sheng Tsang Chen [Ceramics/Jewelry/Glass]
The hottest new talent of the week brought to you by PSFK x Arts Thread. This week a young designer who creates off-beat glass sculptures.
Our Creative of the Week, chosen from ARTS THREAD’s portfolios, is Sheng Tsang Chen from the Royal College of Art’s MA Ceramics & Glass program.
Why we like Sheng Tsang Chen’s work: we enjoy the imaginative approach to glass and the surreal quality seen in the various pieces.

I am a glass maker from Taiwan. My BA which I obtained from Taiwan is in Communication Art. At the moment, I am doing my second year in Ceramics and Glass at the Royal College of Art. My previous work is mainly painting and drawing but I started to work in 3D around 4 years ago. I used to work in a glass museum in Taiwan. My role was to give the visitors an understanding of glass and teach glass blowing. Now I work part-time in Peter Layton’s London Glassblowing Studio and Simon Moor’s Studio.
