OM or AUM Represents the indivisible, indestructible, primal essence of all and everything. Hindus believe that as creation began, the divine all-encompassing consciousness took the form of the first and original vibration manifesting as sound "OM"
Michele Quan designs and sculpts handmade ceramic art and objects from her Brooklyn studio. The pieces become a canvas for her love of drawing, painting, text, and color. Many of the objects and images are rooted in the visual symbols of Eastern iconography- their meaning and beauty of which she is continuously in awe. Her work is an ongoing attempt to articulate that wonder. Ceramic forms are built by hand, wheel-thrown, or slip cast in stoneware and porcelain. Original models for slip cast work are hand sculpted and images are painted by hand. Other materials used include hand-dyed cotton, hemp rope, and reclaimed wood.
