Diem Chau

You will likely recognize this crayon image from the cover of issue #11. It is the handiwork of Seattle-based artist Diem Chau. Diem has a new show of her thread drawing and ceramic work opening this Thursday at the Hoffman Gallery Shop in Portland, Oregon. Though perhaps at first glance there's quite a difference in style between the carved crayons and the thread drawings, each speak to Diem's interest in the fragility of objects as—well as her patience.
