Bai creates masterpieces inspired by trivial, everyday events

The first thing he does after he wakes up every morning is to make a pot of tea and let opera or symphony music fill his house.

He says his love of drinking tea is sparked by producing teacups, pots and plates.

Meanwhile, Zhou Changjiang, an oil painter and a longtime friend of the artist, says Bai and his porcelain works are an integrated whole. He says he can see Bai in his works. Zhou says Bai is the kind of gifted artist you cannot produce by training.

Bai says he has a natural fondness for traditional Chinese culture. He adds that he will never stop being innovative when transforming this traditional beauty into modern art.

Bai, who also produces porcelain sculptures and installations and paints on plates, now uses 3-D printing to innovate.

"The process of producing a porcelain work involves knowing yourself and the world," he says.

A retrospective show on Bai will be held at the Beijing Minsheng Art Museum in April.
