Brooklyn-based artist Elaine Tian
grew up in Sydney, Australia.
Her work intertwines the disciplines of
painting, sculpture and design. Wabi-
Sabi, a Japanese aesthetic philosophy,
breathes life into the serene simplicity
of her porcelain collections.
"Working in the wabi-sabi tradition has taught me to relinquish control, and embrace imperfection as beauty. Clay is an unpredictable material, and the kiln has a mind of its own. Acceptance is a powerful lesson."
