YU CHI CHIEN
Growing up in Taiwan with jeweler parents, I was encouraged to develop my own interests in art from early childhood. As an undergraduate, I studied industrial design which improved my ability in many aspects. Influenced by my design background, I strive for distinctive characteristics and a practical spirit in my work. I draw inspiration from every story I encounter and the minor details of life around me. I enjoy combining different materials and explore many different possibilities in my work. I express my ideas not only in jewelry forms but also in sculptures and more daily objects and try to not limit myself.
