Asian culture is an indispensable part of my daily life
When Ye Hua lived in China, she was already interested in Asian art and objects. Soon this interest turned into a passion. This was especially influenced by her husband who had already been in the antiques industry for 25 years. At first, Ye Hua began to collect Chinese porcelain from the 17th and 18th century. She still searches high and low for these pieces at auctions, markets and antique shops. Through doing so, Ye Hua has held thousands of pieces in her hands and has built up a great knowledge of Asian art and objects. She loves to dive deep into this topic and discuss it with other experts or with her husband, with whom she shares her passion. Now that Ye Hua works as an auctioneer, her passion fills an even bigger part of her life. With her experienced eye for detail, she thoroughly inspects the lots offered to Catawiki keeping in mind all aspects that are important for Asian art and objects, such as material, weight, manufacture, decoration and finishing. The rich Asian image culture plays an important role in this, as Ye Hua knows. Certain figures and symbols may be important for the value of an object. Thus, behind each object, there is a story that she can share with all Catawiki visitors.
