Introduction
Feng was born in Hualien, and his idea of creation originates from own life experience. Graduated from Mechanical Engineer Dept. of Junior College, Feng gets used to using mechanical tools while it is necessary for him. Later, he turned to stone-carving, always staying in the narrow space of the studio, where he often glimpsed the various carving tools which are new, old, distorted, damaged or deformed. Being moved by them, Feng makes a thoughtful consideration that the tools not only be endowed with quality of convenience. In the light of the perspective that all living entities are not only equal but are also with spirituality, he may feel somewhat of another different forms of life while he takes motion of opening, closing, removing, and remaining still while carving. The source of his creativity is from all sorts of materials such as hammers, screws, iron nails, wrenches, spades and pincer pliers. All these tools could generate many forms that originated from their own vitality inside. Therefore, to sense vitality delivered from the objects and to create his style by using the totems of various tools, he thinks, no matter how realistic, abstract or metaphorical, they are kinds of projection of feelings that closed to the real life itself. 
In leisure time, Feng enjoys music and singing, he deeply explores the melody from his inner heart. The shape of the musical instrument is originated from the whole row of pan flutes or the round-shaped bamboo pipes of reed-pipe wind instrument. While the round pipes are being arrayed by musical scales, they will naturally exhibit the rhythm of life. For Feng, the process of creation is such a pleasure as well as happiness while he is on the way. Through the observation and perspective to life environment, he transforms his self-recognition into the materials of mediums. Using stone sculpture, he embodies his abstract inner thinking and subtly blends them into the exterior forms of his creations which present his visions, thinking and dialectics. After years of creating, he always embodies his thoughts into the concrete carving jobs in order to reflect life itself. Feng believes, it is a process of recording life because “the perfection comes from an elevated heart, from which the carving job endows the forms.
