About the Artist
Hazel Wong began her professional career in 2003, when a school principal asked her to conceptualise and design a marine mural that involves the teaching of 400 10-year old children to create. Since then, one mural lead to another, and to date, she has delivered more than 50 ceramic murals. Her unique nature-themed murals are hand-sculpted and some relief sculptural works takes the size of 30 - 40cm, weighting some 8 - 10 kgs per piece. In recent years, her work has gained a more expressive quality through the use of high relief and a unique tessellated patterning. Her latest work for Pioneer Polyclinic is a testimony to this new style of work. Her school-based ceramic programmes are developmentally appropriate and often integrates thinking and innovation development elements.
