About Simon Manoha


IconInspires

What inspires you?

The silent world.


IconCreative

Describe your creative process.

I try to come deeper to the roots. In ceramic I work with materials I found into the mountain where I live: clays, minerals, rocks, trees, animals. The creation of a ceramic can be completly understanding by doing everything from start to finish. Living in a mountain, hearing the river's flow then taking a bit of clay and finding a new glaze and the pot can be perfect if you work hard. It will be neither contradiction into your pot, you will achieve a unity: you, the world, the pot. That's my aim.
