At each step of the process, from the wheel to the kiln, I drastically select the pieces that can go further. Sometimes, as for the “Earth bowls”, one on ten is finally fired. And, in the end, the kiln, which isn’t always in a good mood, makes the final choices. This is why finding the perfect balance between shapes, scales, volume, textures, and woodfire or glaze effects is a pretty rare alchemy. This work, and this work only, deserves to travel in exhibitions and galleries.

The Earth Collection

I learnt from the Japanese that beauty lies in the accidents, the vertigo of the infinitely large and the infinitely small, the magnetic mess of nature. The ‘Earth’ bowls, boxes and vases are an expression of this vertigo, as I have not yet managed to wholly reject this terribly naïve idea that art can be sometimes nothing more than a reproduction of nature’s wonderful spectacle.
