I am an industrial designer and ceramic artist, born and raised in Germany with Japanese and Taiwanese roots. In 2020 I graduated from Folkwang University of the Arts. Besides my own creations I work as a product designer at onomao in Cologne.

During the study I specialized my work on the ceramic material. I tried to understand the processes of the material from the raw state to the finished object from the craft and industrial perspective. Through the interest in it, I always tried to improve my skills in the production of ceramics, which, as in any profession, probably lasts more than a lifetime.
