Liaung-Chung Yen

Liaung-Chung Yen was born and raised in Taiwan. His jewelry and artistic aesthetic are influenced by Chinese art and culture. Using 18k gold, sterling silver, and precious stones, Liaung creates work that is notable for its delicacy, rhythm, geometry, and sculptural qualities. The unique forms of his jewelry are inspired by the natural landscape, plants, and minerals.

“I like to see my jewelry/work as expressions of art and capable of communicating on the level of a poem.”

Liaung-Chung Yen is the recipient of numerous awards including MJSA Vision Awards, the New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship, and a NICHE Award. His work is part of the teaching collection of the Museum of Contemporary Craft in Portland, Oregon and the National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design in Oslo, Norway.
