Tzyy Yi Young

Born: 1991

Hometown: Taipei

Lives and Works: Norfolk, Virginia

 

Tzyy-Yi (Amy) Young was born and raised in Taipei, Taiwan. Her native society’s focus on the collective instilled in Amy a deep desire to express herself as an individual. Through a chance encounter with ceramics after moving across the world she found her voice. As a writer uses a pen to speak their truth, Ms. Young uses the pottery wheel to shape hers.

Once a student of science, Ms. Young’s analytic and observant nature is fulfilled by creating art through “things that spin”. In her practice, Amy captures her surroundings and translates the world around her into eloquent and simplistic three- dimensional forms. Her love of precision and interest in the relationship between form and function led her to complement her training in ceramics with the pursuit of glassblowing.


Ms. Young received her BFA from the University of Washington in Three Dimensional Forms, and has continued her education at institutions such as Penland School of Craft, Haystack School of Craft, and Pilchuck Glass School.

Ms. Young was awarded an International Internship with Rometti in Umbertide, Italy, where she received the Rometti award, earning her work a place in Roche Bobois permanent collection. She is currently participating in the highly competitive Chrysler Museum Glass Studio Assistant Residency where she will continue to dissect the vernacular of her surroundings—creating elegant order out of complicated chaos.
