Intro
Mian Wu is a jewelry maker, designer, and educator. She graduated from Central Academy of Fine Arts (CAFA) with M.A degree, distinction and principal nomination award. Before her current role as lecturer in CAFA and HIFA, she worked as an assistant artist for Kim Buck studio in 2013. Her works have been exhibited in many places around the world including Nijmegen, Melbourne, Lower Hutt, Vienna, Munich and so on. Mian's works have been collected by CAFA Museum, Ubi Gallery, and Wuhao Gallery in Beijing. Since 2015, she is also responsible for the design of the Asian Symbol collection of Swarovski.

Statement

As Dutch artist, Ted Noten said, Jewelry must follow the traditional codes to break them. The tradition here is the jewellery in all aspects of the evolution of history, in people's concepts, in social life, directly or indirectly. For example, its close relationship with the body, the natural connection with precious metals and gemstones, the mission of communicating with the gods, the role as a firm commitment in love and marriage, a mass-produced product in commodity society, these are all the topics that I want to discuss through jewellery. Therefore, the deep-rooted concepts of jewellery become the most interesting aspects that we can play with rather than limitations.
