Catalogue Entry

The Gambler is a Shiwan ceramic sculpture with white kaolinite and Shiwan silt. This Shiwan figurine is seated behind high stack of chips, hosting a big grin on his face. His overjoyed expression indicates that this dice roller is having a good day.


Fine details, such as the garment floats freely behind him, in tandem with a vivid expression, illustrate the best in craftsmanship. 


賭徒是以白色高嶺石和石灣粉砂所製成的石灣陶瓷雕塑。這個石灣小人坐在一堆籌碼後面,臉上掛著大大的笑容。他喜出望外的表情表明這個擲骰子的人今天過得很愉快。


雕塑精細的細節,如衣服在他身後自由漂浮,與生動的表情相結合,展現了工匠精湛的工藝。
