During the past decade, Tsang continued to develop his techniques in capturing the instantaneous moment of splashes with white porcelain and stainless steel. In 2011 and 2012, Tsang’s works, “Bowls of Fantasy” and “Splash of Wonder”, were awarded the Special Prize of Korea Gyeonggi International Ceramic Biennale 2011 International Competition and Grand Prize of 2012 Taiwan International Ceramics Biennale respectively. Tsang is the first Chinese artist who received both of these two prestigious international ceramics awards.

Apart from ceramics, Tsang has worked on stainless steel sculptures and public art projects since 2004. He has been commissioned by a number of private and public organisations. In 2009, Tsang received “The Secretary for Home Affairs’ Commendation” from the Government of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region for his outstanding achievements in international art events. Since 2014, Tsang has been appointed as the Museum Expert Advisor of the Leisure and Cultural Services Department.
