Diem Chau

Wednesday, 26 March 2008 by Irene Hoofs

i LOVE ceramic artwork like this...born in 'Saigon' Diem Chau is a Vietnam native, but she and her family came to America as refugees in 1986. After graduating from Cornish College of the Arts several galleries exhibited her fabulous work. 
Diem Chau embroiders on porcelain plates and cups...how?...I don't know...but Diem says she combines common mediums and common means to create delicate vignettes of fleeting memory, gesture and form, resulting in works that combine egalitarian sensibility and minimalist restraint.
And this is some of her amazing previous work...Carved crayons & wood base...Diem Chau wanted to ply everyday objects to tell her own stories, she says she loves the idea od 'This is what I have, so this is what I'l make' or in othr words 'I'ts art and crafts meet survivalist'...I can only say...wow, superb, beautiful and love love love it! If you would like your child, mother, husband or dog carved in a crayon...just contact Diem for more information...her Crayon commissions are available upon request. {thanks Emma for showing Diem's work}
