M QUAN STUDIO
"I make ceramic art & objects for the home and garden. The pieces become a canvas for my 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 I am continuously in awe.
Impermanence & interconnection are ideas that I return to often, drawing inspiration from the writings and teachings of Buddhism and it’s extensive visual language. I understand the meanings to be universal and independent of religious attachments.
Clay forms are hand built or thrown on the wheel and all images are hand painted. The work is then fired in a gas kiln to 2350 degrees. Other materials used include hand-dyed cotton, hemp rope and reclaimed wood." ~Michele Quan
