Li Qiang, born in east China's Jiangxi Province, has been working on porcelain carvings for more than 50 years.
As a folk artist in porcelain carving, Li uses porcelain as "paper" and a knife as a "pen", and transforms porcelain plates into exquisite art with vivid landscapes, figures, flowers and birds.
Li's artistic ideas come from family traditional porcelain carvings, metal carvings, traditional Chinese paintings and constant innovation.
It's different from painting. Painting is to add color, but porcelain carving is to cut glaze, which asks for precise operation. If you fail to operate correctly once, you have to give up the whole porcelain, according Li.
