Program: Master Course
Period: Jan 10, 2022 - Jul 29, 2022

I was a nurse, but with my love and interest in art, I studied interior design, jewelry design, and metalworking-related courses at the Institute of Applied Fine Arts at Fu Jen University in Taiwan. I like jewelry design very much, so I was honored to participate in the design competition held by the school, and I won the prize.
I decided to come here to take the jewelry design course for improving my drawing ability and deepen my knowledge of jewelry design. I hope that my design works will be appreciated and that I will open my own studio in the future.

Ceramics Museum of Montelupo Fiorentino
Jewelry Design blogPicture 8 : All the pottery on display in the museum was found during excavations carried out in the Montelupo Historic Center, and it includes a collection of ceramic works from the end of the 13th century to the 18th century.
Jewelry Design blogPicture 9 : The potter’s workshop was where a large number of complex activities were carried out. As demonstrated by the items on display here, it was a place where production and experimentation were carried out, as well as and teaching of the trade.
Jewelry Design blogPicture 10 : This one was made in 1480 as a tribute to nanina
Jewelry Design blogPicture 11 : Any artist’s cry to his heart can store symbols of symbolic meaning in his works. Just like this work, the two most powerful families in the history of Florence, this plate is a metaphor for the historical background at that time.

A small pot, decorated according to the damask cannon. Presented with strong symbolic elements of the sun and moon, the expression has a feeling of suffering.
