All your sculptures are Su Tung Han creates by hand, spending many months on it. As a material, the creator uses exclusively natural material. Usually this is a giant thuja — a tree growing in Southeast Asia, with soft and viscous wood.

Su's work Tung Hana is very painstaking and consists of several stages. First, the sculptor draws a sketch of the future work on paper. After that, he creates a clay sculpture layout and takes a long time to refine it, changing individual elements. Only after everything is brought to the ideal, Khan looks for a suitable workpiece and takes up the cutter.
