Michele Quan designs and sculpts handmade ceramic art and objects from her Brooklyn studio. The pieces become a canvas for her love of drawing, painting, text, and color. Many of the objects and images are rooted in the visual symbols of Eastern iconography- their meaning and beauty of which she is continuously in awe. Her work is an ongoing attempt to articulate that wonder. Ceramic forms are built by hand, wheel-thrown, or slip cast in stoneware and porcelain. Original models for slip cast work are hand sculpted and images are painted by hand. Other materials used include hand-dyed cotton, hemp rope, and reclaimed wood.
