Derek Au is an American ceramist based in Jingdezhen China
Derek will be showing at The Clay Studio next season and I cannot wait! His pieces are inspired by tinware, origami and Song Dynasty Qingbai ware. Each piece is made from slabs that are folded into the forms. Au uses templates he draws using traditional tinware makers tools. He then uses the templates to make the clay forms.
These are such delicate forms, i cant wait to hold them!
