Born and raised in Guilin, China, Jing Huang is a ceramic artist currently living and working in Charlotte, North Carolina. She received degrees from Jingdezhen Ceramic Institute (BA, Ceramic Art, 2012), Sheridan College (Diploma, Craft and Design, 2015) and Alfred University (MFA, Ceramic Art, 2020). Jing has lectured, curated exhibitions, conducted workshops and exhibited extensively throughout the US, Canada, China and the UK.
Jing explores unknown scenery in the liminal space between her ‘past’ and ‘present.’ Jing is a perpetual shifter and seeker – drawn to explore environments, ‘landscapes’ and new ‘contexts’ for herself to be and the work to become. Through multiple layering of ceramic materials, assembling, and firing her work in unconventional, unpredictable ways, her forms reflect the flow of landscape and atmosphere in changing environments, embodying the nature of her diasporic experience.
