Fu Junmin, chairman of Xuanmingdianju, founder and design director of Pingze. The publications include:"Ming Yun", "Zhu Qi Xun Yun", "Kan Kan Zhuo Tan" and so on. He has been rated as Chinese woodcarving master, master of arts and crafts, and master craftsman.
Pingze furniture is simple and elegant for its simple lines interwoven with perfect curvature. Fu Junmin, the founder of Pingze Furniture, came from a long line of woodcarvers in Dongyang, Zhejiang. He loved traditional Chinese furniture culture since his childhood and had unique insights into traditional furniture art. "Every piece of Pingze works, fromits creative inspiration to the final production, leaves a deep impression on me," Fu Junmin said, "For the production of "Bamboo Inlaid Geometric Screen", I have repeatedly sought forsuitable craftsmen and artisans, and even changed the material, resulting in an increase in costs."
This exhibit "Cloisonné Box" is another delicate design. The box has undergone hundredsof tests in which the technical problems have been solved. Without filigree, the flatness of the surface is ensured, and the fluid glaze color is realized. Cloisonné is extracted from the concrete pattern, and is endowed with the abstract beauty, turning upside down the people's aesthetic of cloisonné. Fu Junmin said: "The creative rocess of "Cloisonné Box" is the most memorable. I have been wondering about how to integrate cloisonné into the present life so that the craft serves the life. In recent years, I have been following new ink raintings and traditional Chinese realistic raintings in modern life. I am most impressed by the raintings of Zhu Jinzhong. Most works are painted in grey. I once happened to see him painting a landscape painting in green. The vibrant color deeply attracted me. The idea of combining painting with cloisonné occurred to me all of a sudden"
