Qi is an internationally exhibited artist and ceramist creating original surrealist narrative works. She works primarily with hand-built and thrown high-fire stoneware, with free-hand carved original illustrations.
Qi’s ceramics search for conversations between the object and are deeply inspired by Taoism and Phenomenology philosophy. Rather than following a well-planned blueprint Qi allows the shape of the clay and drawing to determine the composition. Like a spreading vine, her expressive pictures find ways to shape the object, forming the outlines and content. They create an open and often circular narrative, set up visual adventures and embrace different ways of telling stories.
