Hello, my name is Yuxin Tang. I was born in China and I started my studies in the UK in 2014. I first got to know about ceramics was in the second year of university. After a 5 weeks project making ceramics products, I decided that this material is what I am going to work with.

 

I want to combine art and design together. Ceramics is the ideal source for me because it is a kind of material that requires accuracy and delicacy. Tableware is the most frequent object I made before. I want to make the best use of clay to create playful but useful ceramics pieces. I have skilled in mould making to produce ceramics products is mass productions. Also, sometimes I am seeking my potential in making sculptures.   As I am still studying, I try new things and get every chance to improve myself.
