“To own once and to hold ever after. Copper represents eternity. It is the craftsmanship that I will always possess and continue to pass it on.”
Master Liu Wing Sheung started his copper casting career in 1962. He is now one of the remaining casting masters in Hong Kong. Besides copper, he also casts other materials such as stainless steel, iron, silver and glass.
Even at the age of eighty, Master Liu continues to explore the techniques of casting humbly. He always strives for perfection and looks for improvement after completing each work. He emphasized that every piece of completed works is pleasing to the eyes, however, the number of failed works is many times more than the number of finished ones. There is no shortcut to success. Only by facing failures honestly and seeking improvement can create extraordinary works. “Be friends with failures.” he said. Master Liu is known for casting realistic baby hands and feet and his fine craftsmanship has attracted many admirers.
