Valéria Nascimento creates one-of-a-kind, site-specific installations made up of porcelain floral elements. Nature is the main source of her inspiration; its beauty, essence, and ephemerality are rendered in her delicate porcelain sculpture.
Nascimento cuts and sculpts her shapes before they are fired at high temperatures. Delicate rings, blossoms, petals, cups, and other botanical elements emerge from the kilns, their colors transformed into soft, muted gradient tones of creams, blues, whites, greys, and blacks. Nascimento's installations take the viewer on a meditative journey through botanical scenery, providing an ethereal experience with the weightlessness of the material. Black Drift is a unique work, signed by the artist.
