Ken Chow has devoted his working life to the craft of woodworking with his passion, constantly perfecting his craft techniques through experimentation and innovation. Having apprenticed in Taipei, Taichung, and Jilin, China, Ken founded Yat Muk Studio to practice, research and teach woodworking. “Yat Muk” means “a lifetime” and “woodwork” in Chinese—hoping to make furniture that can last a lifetime.
Ken aims to explore the authenticity of carpentry crafts and woodworking machinery operations, re-igniting the woodworking culture in Hong Kong. For Ken Chow, woodworking is a form of meditation and exploration of the mind. He has been studying the tradition of woodworking in Hong Kong and honing his skills to create works that fully reveal the beauty of wood.
