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."
