SISTERS

In the embroidered ceramics of Diem Chau, delicate worlds collide. This Vietnamese-American artist has employed a wide variety of materials to evoke stories and faded memories, illuminating connections between people and cultures.

As I looked through her online gallery, I kept coming back to the image of this bowl – something about the tiny knots in the red silk thread reminded me of capillaries and children’s games all at once.
