Intro
Yujia Gao was born and raised in China and currently study at the Royal College of Art in London. During the time at RCA she started getting interested in metal craftsmanship, she began experimenting with making containers and object that we could use in our daily life and combine the object with the craft together in her own way.

Statement

The concept of container got Yujia Gao interested in metalware. Volume, function, size and environment those are the things she wants to explore about the container. She always found beauty in the process of making. During the process of raising the cup, she found the half-finished piece is more attractive than the perfect finished piece. It tells more about the craft, the process of making, the material than the finished one. Somehow the finished work seemed lost the connection to her. For those functional metalware such like the teapot, they often require a series of complicated steps and she found an easy way to make a teapot which doesn’t follow the rules and simply have the basic function for a teapot. It can contain and pour, it has a handle. It is not symmetrical, but it is a teapot.
