Les vents, Winds 2005 -2006 

1/1

4 preparatory sketches

These pieces are constructed by staking  forms one on top of each other. They are engraved and enamelled with a transparent glaze.

 

These are wind movements inspired by wind maps or isobaric maps that I reproduced on the outside surface of the vessels. Indeed, the wind rises and falls in a perpetual and circular movement recalling the  work of the potter and its skills on the wheel. Doesn't the potter's experience also consist in creating forces, pressures, tensions from the vacuum surrounding the clay to shape it?
