I explore the materiality of clay and the somatic and kinaesthetic experiences that clay evokes.

Through the language of clay, I invite conversations.

Working with clay is also an internal dialogue I have with myself, oscillating between mindfulness and mindlessness in making.

When I am not at the studio, I can usually be found at home cuddling my cat, or out singing in a choir.

Currently, home is Shenyang, China.
