Gold Coast, Australia
Hye Youn Shin graduated with a degree in Industrial Design in South Korea. She then further developed her 3D modelling skills in Australia when she took up ceramics in 2016. Her unconventional background helps Hye Youn to see working with clay in a different way. She thinks about space, light and shadow and these elements maximise contrast of her work against their backdrops. Usually decorated with dried flowers, Hye Youn’s wall pieces can be functional objects or still life pieces.
