Delicate and beautiful...

Wednesday, February 8, 2012

Nothing beats that 'wow' feeling you get when you spot something and you connect instantly. I love feeling excited to find out or see more. Well that is exactly how I felt when I first spotted Diem Chau's work. Diem Chau is a Vietnam native, who came to the US as a refugee in the 80s and is a studied and well acclaimed artist in her own right. She creates beautifully delicate pieces of art working with porcelains and various textiles. I love how her pieces unexpectedly tell a story and yet are so minimal. I never thought a plate or a tea cup would draw me in so much...they are breathtaking. Not to mention, Diem sculpts amazing pieces using crayons. Crayons people. It is amazing check it out and don't forget to see more of her talent here and her lovely blog here.
Gorgeous right? I mean that is a plate, organza and thread. Wow. Pink dress can be found here.
A tea cup...a tea cup people. Love. Red Shoes available here.
This one got me good. I love it. Slumber (49) 2011 available here.
Stunning little creations right? Spotted here.

My jaw just dropped. These are crazy cool!
Whenever I use crayons I seem to break them in half - I couldn't possibly ever carve in to them! How amazing.
