Breaths

 

 

 

I first imagined these little "breaths" in connection with the project "Harvesting the waterfall". 

 

They are pieces that I throw on the wheel and breathe into immediately after throwing They fit in my hands. It is the plasticity of the material and the force of my breath that deforms these small objects into variable and sometimes even cracked shapes as I breathe in and out. I then fire them as they are.

I use clay gathered in Saint-Hyacinthe to make them.

 

I presented them at the Sutton art gallery as part of the exhibition "Marier la terre, les feuilles, la forêt" and at Joann Côté's Verger Créatif. as part of the exhibition "Ève au jardin de pommes", collaboration with Camille Cazin, Fatale Art gallery
