July 2011 : I think I found a better way to qualify my ceramic pieces : ”Almost Square”

I have been continuing working with the same format, sometimes from old sketches , but also added new themes when I feel I created 5 pieces on a subject that will allow it to be put aside for a while... Last summer I had started, in NY , to work on the popular subject of “Vanities”. I thought it was very well connected with the “Masks” and “Mirrors” subjects that I have been visiting for a long time. With this subject I started discovering a new aesthetic and found the adequacy between the plasticity of clay and the Form that relate to this topic.

On the “Construction” side, and I am not referring to house renovations, I continue to build on the theme of “HOME”. Of course I continue to comment in “stoneware” some of the world news events. (Nigeria, Veils…)

*And since I finally decided to write ,I would like to post the picture of an 19th century tea pot that bears the marks of repairs and one can see it as a good way to reflect on life and ceramics (Ariana , Genève, CH.)
