Ceramic artist Jing Huang based her sculptural work on the Buddhist Jataka tale of The Deer of Nine Colours, which were discovered as cave paintings from the Mogao Caves in Dunhuang, China.

Born in China, her work is guided by experiences living in an unfamiliar landscape, meeting new people and experiencing new cultures. Her work records the changes in her life outside her country of origin.
