Unconventional Media

Diem Chau is my newest design crush. I’m totally in awe of the unconventional materials and techniques that go into making this superbly provoking and charming work. For instance, crayons as the basis for sculpture? Brilliant. I’m a sucker for brightly colored multiples of just about anything- but this takes that obsession to a whole new level. There is such talent in these little itty bitty crayon sculptures.

Or what about these really stunning embroidered plates? I love work with unfinished edges and these little loose strings make my heart sing. But wait- how does she do this? We’ll never know- but what I’m certain of, Diem is an artist to watch.
