About the designer:
Yu-Ching Wu was born in Taiwan. She received a degree in 1996 from the National Taiwan University of Arts in Taipei. She obtained a diplôme national d’arts plastiques (DNAP) in 1999 and a diplôme national supérieur d’expression plastique (DNSEP) in 2001 in Lyon, France. She also graduated with a qualification in jewelry formation from Paris’ BJO Formation in 2000.
Prior to creating jewelry, she delved into sculpting, writing and anthropology – all of which influence her current work. In particular, her background in sculpture has helped her better understand the three-dimensional nature of objects, while literature often acts as a catalyst for the concepts underpinning her creations.
Yu-Ching Wu has been living and working in Berlin since 2005.
