"An easy way to remember and understand those "between" lunar phase names is by breaking out and defining 4 words: crescent, gibbous, waxing, and waning. The word crescent refers to the phases where the moon is less than half illuminated."

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.
