Working in Professor Ching Yuan Chang’s Studio and the Chin Chin Pottery, Elaine built lasting relationships with international artists and local audiences. Elaine K. Ng is an artist whose work explores the physical and psychological structures of sites. Her Fulbright research in Taiwan began with ideas rooted in cultural cartography and has focused specifically on the materials and patterns that define a place.
