Ruby Yu-Lu Yeh is a Taiwanese-Australian ceramic artist based in Meanjin (Brisbane). She utilises both wheel-throwing and hand-building techniques to experiment with clay and develops works that are both sculptural and functional. Ruby’s current exploration focus on creating larger work as vessel of an internal dialogue between her Eastern upbringing and Western education.

Ruby is also a student of Urasenke Chado (Japanese tea ceremony) under the guidance of Sensei Tomoko (Soho) White.
