From young I was taught that perfection is a goal one must always strive to achieve. However, as I’ve journeyed through life as an artist, I’ve come to realise such an idealised interpretation of reality is both false, and ugly. True art is knowing when to let go, trusting a piece to ‘perfect’ itself. True beauty is flawed beauty.
In creating this ceramic series, I wanted the clay to ‘speak’ rather than me. I worked with it up to a point and then, let go, inviting it to shape itself to reveal a far more compelling aesthetic truth than I ever could. In so doing, I have come to see and appreciate the inherent wabisabiness of our natural world to a far deeper degree as I hope all who view my work will too.

James Seet (b. 1970, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia) is a pioneer in the advertising field in Malaysia with over two decades of experience. In this time, he had carved himself a niche as an advertising creative with insight for creating art within the realm of advertising design. He particularly excelled at conceptualizing 2D imaginations into 3D presentations. This served as an entry point for him into ceramics. His earliest education in ceramics came from an experienced local potter, Yeow Seng Cheah and international potter, Margaret Fenn. He also travelled to Fitzroy Falls, Australia to pot with Neil Boughton, who specializes in lustrewares.
Seet has represented Malaysia in various ceramic festivals, international conferences & exhibitions including the 2nd South East Asia Ceramic Conference, in FLICAM, Fuping, China in 2012. His works are collected by several international collections including the ceramic museums in A’lcora, Spain and Shaw International Centre for Contemporary Ceramics Canada.
