Yang Qiu is a prolific interdisciplinary artist based in Sydney, Australia. 

Informed by her background as a pastry chef, her unique approach to ceramic creation, involves transforming local produce, such as corn, eggplants, and mandarins, into functional ceramic sculptures, all while exploring the shapes and surfaces of food in her paintings. 

She imbues her work with a sense of whimsy and childlike wonder, often characterising her creations with faces and legs, as though imbuing them with personalities and identities.
