Wu Jia

Born in 1988, Wu is rather young to have quite a number of works already collected institutionally. Since 17, she has been working hard in this art. After apprenticeship consecutively to two contemporary masters, the young woman went on to study the art of the clay in the University of Geosciences in Beijing before going forth to work independently as an artist. Her works began catching attention after winning a few regional awards since 2016. Institutions, one notably Shanghai Arts and Crafts Museum, began taking in her works in their permanent collections.

Wu’s work is meticulously precise, delicately shaped and always in fine ground clay.
