Maki Tamura

It may look like a ceramic tile piece but it's not. Maki Tamura designs beautiful ornamented works using wood and watercolors on paper. The time she puts into her craft (tediously cutting, glueing, and painting) makes it truly deceptive to those of us who deal with clay everyday. Although she comes from a japanese background, her style influences come from the rococo motifs of 18th and 19th century European arts.

Here is a link to her series "The Enlightenment" in the Lucas Schoormans Gallery back in 2006>
