Not only did I think “Damn I wish I thought of that”, but I also thought “Damn I wish I had the patience to pull that off.” I love the feeling of childhood that Diem Chau creates with this piece (I can almost smell the crayons), not to mention the meticulous execution. This is an example of her older work, but I loved it so much I couldn’t pass a chance to show it. You can find this, and her current work (ceramic pieces covered in embroidered silk) at diemchau.com
I’m doing everything in my power not to write “Carpe Diem Chau”… but clearly I can’t control myself. Sorry.
