Drawing on his graduate thesis work at the Rhode Island School of Design, Three Wheel Studio founder Dwo Wen Chen combines flowers and pigment to create a gorgeously painted vase. He says, "I like flowers at all different stages of beauty: the anticipation of newly formed flower buds, the brilliance of a full bloom, and the sorrow before the decay."
About Three Wheel Studio: Based in Providence, Rhode Island, Three Wheel Studio proprietor and potter Dwo Wen “Luke” Chen presses his ceramic pieces with natural botanicals that are burned off during their first firing and then hand-glazes each with vivid designs before firing again. Born in a Southern Taiwan farming village to a family who encouraged his artistic endeavors, Chen uses the forgiving nature of clay as inspiration, translating almost anything that comes to his imagination into an effortlessly elegant heirloom.
