Hsin-Yi Huang was born in Taiwan. She has lived in Oregon for the last 18 years and works with clay full time. Huang had won the Best of Show at the Oregon Potters Association Showcase. Her work is part of the permanent collection at Contemporary Museum of Art and Craft in Portland, Oregon. She has exhibited nationally and internationally. She has also created public art that is on permanent display at the University of Oregon.
The goal of this body of work is to explore patterns in nature.
I use forms found in nature as references for my work, and in particular, of flowers and human body. To me, flowers and the human anatomy have structural resemblances that are astonishing. It seems that the same laws of physics contribute to their similarity in designs.
What I want my viewers to see is the commonality that living things all share. Like philosopher Francis Bacon said “…..the simple forms or differences of things, which are few in number, and the degrees and coordinations whereof make all this variety.” What underlies our diversity is the great unity.

Nearly 2,200 years ago, the first Emperor of China placed eleven families in Suzhou, China to create hand embroidery Silk Art for the imperial families. A descendant of one of the original families, Forest Qing Zhang, continues the tradition today. Examples of this traditional Chinese art form from King Silk Art will be on display through August 2018.
Art on display is available for purchase through the Garden Shop. For more information or assistance please email or call 503.228.8131 ext. 1028.
