“Harmony always comes from opposites; it is indeed the unity of a mixture of several and the unique thought of separate thinkers. » Philolaos, philosopher and mathematician. If the human being seems to know reality through opposite aspects and on the balance he achieves between extremes, it is rarer, despite the adage, that he makes them meet and attract each other.
The idea of creating these objects arises from this desire to combine handmade ceramic creations with natural (stones, flowers, etc.) and/or industrial (chains, rings, etc.) elements with the aim of to erase the boundaries that we instinctively draw between these types. Combine elements from different environments, confront them and mix them to create unique shapes, materials and pieces. Experiments that lead to creations based on this double dialogue, playing on encounters between repetition, contrast and new sounds.
For the Vase Mailles, the idea is to appropriate the chain and place it around, above or next to the receptacle. You have to play with this object, both by manipulation and by hearing.
Every piece is unique and handmade.
