Meichen was born and raised in China. She is currently pursuing a MA in Ceramics & Glass at the Royal College of Art in London, graduating in July 2023. She previously studied for a BA in Ceramics at Hubei Institute of Fine Arts in China, where she graduated with distinction and was awarded the Outstanding Graduation Work Award.
Meichen went to the Archipelago Art Residency in Korpo, Finland in 2022. She had experience with different studios in Jingdezhen, China, and studied local techniques during 2019-2020. Also she had an internship in Qichun Pipe Kiln Factory, China in 2018.
Drawing on her childhood experiences of nature, Meichen believes that nature is not what humans think it is and should not be controlled. Meichen's approach to making is experimental, exploring the difference in texture of slip with different levels of humidity that are squeezed out of a syringe. She removes the shape of a strawberry, for instance, keeps its texture, and reconstitutes it as new shapes. Meichen tries to re-combine different living beings together which then become a new species.
