Yang Chenyue is a young glass artist who graduated from the China Academy of Art and is currently studying at the Rochester Institute of Technology. My work is usually based on material experiments, and the various characteristics of glass are studied by various means such as casting, lampwork, and blowing.

The sense of alienation of reality and suspicion of the objective world is the source of inspiration for my current work. I believe that there is a strong impulse of self-destruction within the human being, although this impulse is often suppressed but it leads people to the tragic end. I am addicted to the alienation between this inner, destructive instinct and the outside real world, and try to express it through the various characteristics of glass.
