Hong Kong painter and ceramic artist, Terence Lee graduated from California College of Art and Crafts with a major in contemporary ceramics and painting. After returning to Hong Kong in 1984, he began to teach painting and ceramics in his studio and other art faculties, including HK Art Centre, Chinese University and HKU SPACE. He has conducted solo and group exhibitions both in Hong Kong and overseas.

To pursue his interest in Chinese Song ceramics, he traveled widely to China where he collected sherds at various old kiln sites and experimented with the production of ceramics using a traditional 55 meter-long dragon kiln. His works, embracing both traditional and contemporary techniques and styles, are collected by museums in Hong Kong and Beijing.

Gitone is Terence's studio and gallery where he also conducts painting and ceramic classes for adults and children during the day. In the evening, it transforms into an elegant restaurant for private dining with home-style cooking served in exquisite utensils that are unique pieces of art beautifully handmade by Terence and others.

This special summer gathering will begin with an optional workshop where Terence will talk about over-glaze painting and guide participants through the process of designing and putting their creative designs onto ceramic plates. After the workshop, everyone will feast on Gitone's Summer Special menu that includes its signature dish – Stewed Pig's Trotter. At the end of dinner, everyone is welcome to stay and enjoy the summer evening with music to sing and dance into the night.
