Viviane Tabach works in the areas of curatorship, art education, and fine arts. She founded ceramic brand Lebú in 2014 and ran her own workshop and art space in São Paolo, Brasil. As a ceramics teacher with many years of experience, in her classes she seeks to collectively investigate the experience of hand-building with clay. The contact with clay for her is as a way to connect with nature, negotiation between intention and intuition in shaping, observation of the contrast between our rhythm and the clay's pace.
