They are innovative young designers whose philosophy is to create striking pieces that will add beauty to the small details of day-to-day living.Discover more

Her pieces are cutting edge and she is always looking for ways to make porcelain appear delicate and fragile. Tall slender vases appear almost made from origami paper and geometric cut brooches look like jewels. She is also the first Chinese artist that Hermès partnered with and her most recent exhibition, “Light of Water, Lustre of Porcelain”, was held at Hermès Maison in Shanghai.Discover more
