For me, last week's exposé of ceramics just wasn't enough - I missed out so many people I admire! So I'm back with another one. This plate is the work of Diem Chau. Isn't it brilliant?! It appears to be an embroidered plate. I've figured out how it's done, but won't spoil the illusion. She also has a blog and a great flickr set of her art. You MUST go and take a look at her carved crayons! Go on!
