Meet the Maker: Canberra based ceramics artist, Wai Ling Yiu (Bling), has a diverse design background ranging from fashion designer in Hong Kong to being head illustrator for nationally published children's books in Australia.
Blings' passion for ceramics began in 2018 and continues to develop with time and experimentation. The collection of works she creates is known by the makers mark of 'WeAreMade'. Her work explores ideas relating to human characteristics and their ability to convey meaning and emotion. Through all of her 'Little men' she sends the message the 'we are made to be with others, and we are created to flourish in the purpose of life'. Therefore, many of the pieces of her work do not exist in isolation, but are coupled as pairs or exist as small groups. Blings' work has been selected to be part of numerous exhibitions nation wide.
