In my works, I was inspired by my childhood memories with grandparents, who worked in Beijing Filigree Inlay Factory. To resonate those moments, I use filigree as my main techniques. Using silver as a main material to keep the strong relationship between my grandparents and myself. Since I have background, I am really into geometry. Also, I love of nature creates the unique combination of mushroom and geometric shapes.
