HO Hin Ting
何衍婷

HO Hin Ting focuses on craft-making. She is interested in collecting small and inconspicuous objects from daily life as the main element of her works. She creates works not only inspired by the liveliness and vitality in nature but also based on her expanding memories and personal stories. While exploring ceramic, painting, drawing, glass and textiles in her earlier works, she finds herself particularly keen on observing and making miniatures. Thus, she finds ways to combine her personal collections and embroidery to make jewellery. She constantly develops her own methods in jewellery-making in order to make them more portable and interactive to remind people of the beauty of the natural environment and the importance of cherishing memories.

何衍婷專注於工藝製作。她喜歡收集日常生活中微型和不顯眼的東西作為她創作的主要元素。她的作品不但受到大自然中的生機和活力所啟發,更以個人的成長回憶和故事作依據。她在早期的作品中主要探索陶瓷、繪畫丶素描丶玻璃和紡織,她發現自己特別熱衷於觀察和製作微型的作品。因此,她通過結合個人的收藏和刺繡的工藝來建立及發展自己的首飾製作方式,並使其更具便攜性和互動性,從而以作品來提醒人們享受自然環境中的美和珍惜回憶的重要性。

'Hard work is always the way to success.'

People have said that hair drops from one's head when their brain is working too hard. HO Hin Ting collects and uses her own hair to symbolise her hard work, and embroiders them into each stroke of the Chinese characters nuli which means 'to work hard'. The box containing the brooches is designed in reference to the nine-grid pattern in Chinese penmanship.


The brooches are worn very close to the human heart. Not only does this show that everything is possible with your heart and hard work, but it also reminds the wearer to always work hard.

A Life to Alive turns ocean waste from the sea or daily food items into lively objects by using flexible materials like clay to demonstrate the liveliness and curves of life. These ideas are transformed into a series of jewellery that interact with the wearer and remind people about the further use of so-called waste.

Beauty in Nature

Acrylic on wood

The beauty found in the nature is strongly interrelated to our lives. The combination of the different colours in the sky and the wood grain on different pieces of wood make a new landscape from nature and form another angle of seeing the beautiful, amazing and wonderful natural world.
