Wei-Chien's work employs clay as a medium of personal emotion. In recent years, her relationship with the material has evolved from the control she sought as a younger artist, to a more collaborative interaction, negotiating her own self with the self of the clay to find a harmonious coexistence, respecting the character of the clay, just as one ought to respect the character of nature.
