FAIRE ET FER
I grew up taking pleasure in the world of art, with holidays spent in museums or painting in a natural environment, grandparents who were artists and artisans, a mother who is a potter with a passion for popular art... learning to train the eye on lines, colours and shapes was something that happened naturally for me.
This is the reason for my research into the precision of lines, the same commitment to transparency and the need for strong shapes which are filled by the sense and the soul that I give them.
The stages of my research are long and frequently painstaking, until I reach the point of having a shape that breathes or a glaze that tells a story and makes us dream.
Many attempts are needed to understand and master the intricacies of firing to lend the glazes reflections of light foliage using ‘pointillism’ or tiny dots created with drops of oil, lagoon blue on Celadon blue…
Each stage is technical; each stage is about concentration.
The final object is itself, without strain. All is forgotten, mastery alone liberates.
