I studied art and practiced craftsmanship at Nanjing University of the Arts. I hope that my work, whether it is utensils or jewelry, is used to express various exploratory cognitions of the world, and is a dialectical exploration of existence, time and space. So as to finally achieve the unity of concepts and craftsmanship. In 2019, my undergraduate works were shortlisted for the German Talente 2019 exhibition. In addition to creating metalworking art works in China, I also participated in professional jewelry designer competitions in my free time, such as the China Trials of the World Skills Competition.


With the promotion of academic art education, contemporary metal handicraft has been bred and gradually matured, and has become an important force in modern visual art. With the support of contemporary art theory, various contemporary concepts require a new understanding of the value of metal handicrafts. Therefore, it is necessary to trace the origin of metal handicrafts and transform it from its own handicraft culture soil. This demand makes the metal handicraft industry show a strong desire to connect the tradition with the contemporary. In view of this, this paper analyzes the display ways of different concept types involved in metal handicraft creation from the characteristics of concept art expression.
