Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

This piece is a tripod bowl inspired by the bronzes of the Zhou Dynasty. I made it with a clay that I collect directly in the mountain. I work on the general form by sculpted it as a sculpture. Days after, I cave in the inside of the bowl two or three times to obtain the thickness I want. After I fire the piece at 900°C, and then I glaze the pots with many different minerals that I collect in the mountains and crush it by hand. Finally, I fire the bowl a second time at 1280°C. The aim is to work with the same really old and traditional materials who was used by Chinese potters a long time ago but in a contemporary way - as archaic than the Zhou pieces, really close to the nature through its forms and matters.
The bowl is inspired by a traditional technique of making the Chawan for the Japanese tea ceremony. It's the way I work on my tea bowl (shape, balance, weight, size).

The bowl is food-safe, every material is collected in the forest by hand.
