Seated figure

Ju Ming is a sculptor. After an apprenticeship to a wood-carver he became an independent carver of religious images. In 1960 he began to study modern sculpture and from 1968 to 1976 he was Yang Yingfeng’s assistant. Yang Yingfeng worked chiefly in metal. Meanwhile Ju Ming took up taiji, also known as tai chi. He became an independent sculptor working in a wide range of materials including wood, bronze, styrofoam, ceramics and glass. He has had many public commissions, and his work has been exhibited round the Place Vendôme in Paris and on the terrace of the Festival Hall, London.
