Shuang Feng
2014 AWARD: Craft Ontario Volunteer Committee Undergraduate Scholarship

Shuang Feng fell in love with working in metal through a solder attempt that stubbornly failed to flow. Feng is currently studying jewelry design and metalsmithing at OCAD University. Feng was attracted to metal working by the tenacity and fluidity of metal, making use of variety of techniques in an approach to creative practice. Feng is interested in expressing social issues as well as personal feelings. The visual language in Feng’s work is developed through experimenting with materials and exploring identity.
