Originally from Vancouver, Michele Quan moved to New York City to study graphic design and photography at Parsons School of Design. Twelve years before embarking on her current medium of clay, she co-founded the NYC jewelry company Me&Ro. Through MQuan Studio, she designs and sculpts handmade ceramic art and objects for the home and garden. Forms are built by hand, wheel thrown, or slip cast in stoneware and porcelain; all images, many of which are rooted in the visual symbols of Eastern iconography, are hand painted or hand drawn. She works out of her studio in Brooklyn and lives in New York with her husband, daughter, and dog, Sparrow.
