Vivian Shao Chen is a ceramicist.
I make ceramics because there is something completely satisfying about having something utilitarian that also makes you appreciate your physical environment more. These are objects for everyday use.
I search for simple shapes, happy accidents, and a neutral palette. I like to find subtle nuances in proportion and detail that make each piece interesting and beautiful. Everything is made in small batches, each batch exploring a different aspect of a shape or texture.
