Kaya Hoang Applied Art
Design UK - Max Fraser, book launch in mid May 2003: "the minimal, visual clarity of form in kaya's work lends her pieces a sculptural quality that could easily equip them as 21st century ornaments.........her refined forms are derived from the beauty and purity of nature, namely fruits and flora. the seductively shaped openings of her containers mimic the moment when the shell of a seed breaks and starts to sprout providing a subtle reminder of natures influence in the formation of her metalwork...." Design Week 19 Sept 2002 page 19: " award winning silversmith artist Kaya Hoang is continuing the rise of craft - based product design. Hoang's unusual collection of pewter vessels, bowls and tableware seamlessly combines the highly skilled art of silversmithing with an innate sculptural quality that has come to define much of her work......" Evening Standard Homes and Property - Design Page Wednesday 14 August 2002 pg 27: "seductive, sensual and tactile, kaya hoang's vessels won a homes and property award last year. now the world is beating a pathway to her door discovers corinne julius......"

Artist's Statement:
Kaya creates metal containers that blend sculpture and utility. Inspiration for design stems from her abstract drawings of nature, in particular tropical flora and fruits. Kayas pieces are seductive and tactile; form is minimal and serene, the overall effect sensually therapeutic. She applies silversmithing techniques such as forging and raising to silver, brass, steel and pewter. Her latest series is primarily in pewter, many pieces having been formed manually through a combination of metal formers and parts of the body. Her range of work includes vessels, bowls, platters and tableware. Kaya makes pieces for exhibitions, as well as to private commission.
