The videos are playing on SOIL vimeo channel now! This is my first attempt to video production!
In early 2013, I was invited to create a short video about SOIL. I’m glad that to have an opportunity to interview serval Hong Kong craft designers and artists, including Chris Lo [Ceramics Artist], Chau So-Hing [Graphic Designer], Carman Cheung [Craft Designer, Cotton Car], Yeung Sau Lun [The Polska Traveller, Jewellery Designer]. They are all has extensive experience with hand craft design.

"The idea was inspired by a trip to Myanmar."
We interviewed serval Hong Kong designers, including Chau So-Hing and Chris Lo who was invited by SOIL to visit lacquer establishments in Burma in 2012.
After the inspired journey, SOIL worked with them on further experiments on developing original lacquerware design. As a result, the first limited edition “After Sunset” was introduced at the second pop up store in Square Street as the finale exhibition in March 2013.
On the other hand, special thanks to Veronica Gritsenko for all her inspirations and sharing. This video has included some footage of her research on traditional lacquer making at Black Elephant Studio in Bagan, Burma.
