Ching-Chih Wu

Taiwanese artist Ching-Chih Wu is devoted to creating contemporary jewelry. Specializing in plique-à-jour enameling, chasing, repoussé and patina, Wu’s signature is combing enamel to break through the restrictions of metalworking techniques. Most of his works are inspired by plants and insects from Taiwan—he aims to evoke human emotions through these organic forms. For this collection, Wu selected ordinary household items, reimagined them and invented a new species that illustrates his interpretation of the world. He reconstructed these found objects in metal via electroforming, and then restored their original color through enameling. Wu graduated with a BFA and MFA from the department of crafts and design at National Taiwan University of Arts. He was a resident artist in the sculpture studio at Anderson Ranch Art Center in 2013. His body of work transcends practicality, embodying the idea of transforming a concept into a micro-sculpture.
