Product Description

A made-to-order print on archival paper: Innova Fibaprint Matt  from my original watercolour painting on paper: ‘Ching Chong series III’

I first came across Peranakan ceramics when backpacking through Malaysia and Singapore in 1988. I was entranced by the bright colours and floral patterns.

Peranakan porcelain ware was originally intended for wedding celebrations and as gifts to the bride. The peony and phoenix are almost always used on these pieces which contrasts to motifs found on classic Chinese pieces.

Straits Chinese settled throughout the SE Asia region. Over time they lost the Chinese language skills and adapted to local customs and lifestyles. Even though many did not even speak Chinese, they were marked as ‘different’ to the local population.

Having been an immigrant twice in my life and never really fitting into my surroundings 100%, I identify with them in some way.
