clayArt Studios' Resident Artist
Queenie (Kun Xu) is a ceramic designer and maker currently based in Toronto, Ontario.
Raised in China, Queenie received her BFA from Jingdezhen Ceramics Institute of Industrial Design in 2012. While studying in Jingdezhen, she learned the history and the skills of ceramics from her surroundings. In 2013, she was a volunteer at The Pottery Workshop where she fell in love with clay. In 2014, Queenie moved to Canada where she studied Ceramics at Sheridan College in Oakville, Ontario.
Queenie has interests in structures and materials, which pushes her to explore the connecting ground on craft and design. Combining what she learned about the spirit of craft and her knowledge about industrial design processes pushes her into the studio with excitement and vigor.
