Diem Chau is an wonderful artist. Originally from Vietnam, she studied art in Seattle and has won several awards for her work.
Her porcelain works are amazing, using the threads to break out of the confines of the crockery structure. See more of these on her website gallery.
She also produces modern embroideries, that have understated elegance, and that also go beyond their normal dimensions.
