Artist Statement/ アーティストステイトメント

Sandstone and porcelain shaped with a wheel, coil or slabs.

Enamelled, glazed. Woodfiring in an anagama kiln.

A near-obsessive repetiotion of gestures and shapes.

Letting myself be surprised by the result, every time, as I was with those little teapots made with slabs.

Installation of teapots, columns… that have filled my anagama kiln, witnessing fire living through its colors and the way it shapes the pieces.
