Intro
I think that the interpretation of jewellery is down to the perspective of people. The jewellery itself has no standards or is not shaped in a particular way, if it is, it may be a one-sided understanding.
Do you think that jewellery is being standardized? What is there of local and universal in your artistic work?
I think that the interpretation of jewellery is down to the perspective of people. Jewellery itself has no standards or is not shaped in a particular way if it is, it may be a one-sided understanding. My works always start with a very personal feeling, universal may be more like a direction to me, when I feel confused I need to stand with the side of universal to think about my works.


What do you expect when exposing your work to the public (for example with an exhibition)?
I hope that I can hear a discussion about the works.


Are other areas besides the jewellery, present in your work?
In addition to the similar jewelry presentation, paintings may be more. In my junior high school, I painted a lot of small paintings, and all the minor details of love may also be showed in jewelry. Now when I want to realize a work, I always draw it at first, even as a single painting to draw.


The last work, book, film, city that has moved me was...
Recently, I was touched by Japanese noh, the movie is a short film Ghost by Kihachiro Kawamoto, and it is written in the book A Ghost Examination of the Han Dynasty that the imagination of Han people about the underground world which is a place full of vitality and not hell influenced by the Buddhism. This simple and real imagination really touched me.


A place, space, country whose creativity surprises me...
My hometown and Gothenburg, Sweden, where I once went as an exchange student. Things that I'm familiar with always lead me to places that are relevant to it, and my hometown provides me with a steady state of being that makes me want to create until I leave my hometown in 2011 and come to Beijing, and I suddenly feel like I don't know how to continue to export. Then I connected the broken wire. Now every time I go home, I don't naturally want to create something. Gothenburg was a complete stranger to me, and a lot of things had to be connected, which prompted me to think more about everything around me.


Is there any designer, jeweller, artist, you appreciate a lot?
Far is the Quay brothers, a little closer is my classmate, in fact, many, but not very familiar.


What piece or work has given you the most satisfaction?
My own work, there may be a few small paintings, because a small painting can be painted so easy that I can feel instant satisfaction. Jewelry takes a long time to make, it is difficult to feel satisfied, Owner shortcomings can always be perceived objectively. Other people's words can entertain, some fixed animation and songs sung by Yu-Ching Fei also can.


Do you read Jewellery Magazines? What is your source to get information?
Read fewer jewelry magazines, WeChat, textbooks, books that involve knowledge, communication between friends.


Do you discuss your work with other jewellery artists or any other person?
I have a few opportunities to do.


What is your first thought when you hear the word Future? What do you expect for?
In the future, I really don't know what it is like to graduate from the University, I don't even know if the house will be rented for another six months. And I wish I can become more mature.
