Up in the air somewhere…in my heart.

Up in the air somewhere is the labor of love of Chicago-based artist Susan Dwyer.  Her collection of ceramic and papier-mâché vessels literally takes my breath away .every. time.  Each hand made piece is inspired by the minimal lines of industrial architecture in the Chicago landscape.   She uses no molds, so no two pieces are alike.  The simplicity of  her work is stunning and the delicate shapes and textures of her paper vessels is unlike anything I’ve seen.

Large gold paper bowl.  Seriously? Amazing.
