And I happen to know for a fact (maybe because I looked into having one made as a gift for my sister, who I know would appreciate it) that you can commission a crayon sculpture of your own. You send in a picture and Diem Chau carves the sculpture for you, based off of the picture you sent. And get this- you even get to pick the color crayon you want used for your sculpture.
The other work of Diem's that I am amazed by is her ceramic work. She attaches embroidery to ceramic pieces, and I think they are so unique and interesting. One of the hallmark's of her pieces is a fantastic use of the color red, like in these "ruby slippers":
The pieces seem very dynamic to me since she often has elements leave the ceramic piece itself, which adds dimension:
Aren't those pieces so interesting? And another special way to preserve an heirloom- if you have a special piece of ceramic, maybe a bowl or plate or teacup that was passed down to you, you can send it to Diem and commission her to turn it into an art piece. So much more special than having it collect dust in the cubboard, yes?
