The Cratère’s proof series, directly inspired by objects circulating in space, offers as a first impression that of pieces of rock stranded there by chance.
A chaotic surface that catches the light and silhouettes with irregular lines reminiscent of the rough informality characteristic of meteorites.
The name provides a clue as to the function of these strange objects: they are vases, like those of the same name from ancient Greece that were used to store liquids.
CRATERLET + ANTENNE I
h. 32 cm, red earthenware and bleu de Sèvres enamel, 2013
By carefully observing these shapes with wild reliefs, we will see geometric or mechanical elements appear. Holes and openings provide functionality and a precise formal contrast: smooth versus rough, circular versus random.
h. 18 cm, red earthenware and bleu de Sèvres enamel, 2013
A series of small eccentric vases complements this very mineral collection: ANTENNE.
A family of excrescences with bevelled pipes and delicate assemblies, like rigorous haikus or balancing onomatopoeias. A joyful collision of geometric elements, playful angles and cutouts with cobalt reflections.
h. 39 cm, red earthenware and bleu de Sèvres enamel, 2013
It all starts with the discovery in a bucket of earthenware residue of a hazardous amalgam, vaguely evoking the irregular silhouette of a meteorite. This mass of earth will impose itself and serve as an imprint for the realization of a mould.
A relationship analogous to the natural phenomenon if we consider that the crater produced by the impact of a meteorite is a potential mould, a bit like its negative.
