Brooklyn artist, Elaine Tian studied Sculpture at The University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia, then pursued her Masters in Design Studies.

Two years ago, she started Studio Joo, a brand of thoughtfully-designed and handmade objects.

Her work, mainly vessels and light fixtures, is a way of combining her sculpture (form/materials) and design (function) backgrounds. She works primarily in paper, porcelain, and stoneware.

About MU:

This piece is made of English porcelain, and fired in a gas kiln at around 2380°F. It was made initially on a pottery wheel, then hand-altered to give it an organic shape. The line drawing on the clay's surface was made in a Sgraffito tradition, which is basically scratching into the surface of the clay, before it is fired. Other materials I used are Terra sigillata, glazes and copper oxide.
