" All my ghosts! "
The composition has a diameter of 60cm and a height of 30cm
Local stoneware and ash transparent glaze.
Ghosts are full hand made, glazed with white silp and iron oxide and woodfired in my anagama japanese kiln to 1280°C.
Every ghost of my work represents a part of my life that no longer exists.
Every ghost is a failure, a defeat, a displeasure, a failed dream, a disappointment, a pain and a betrayed hope.
This year I present only one work because it has been a difficult year for my work and my life.
My sculpture is based primarily on manual hand-shaping, material gres and fire control,
the latter obtained only after years of experience and experimentation with wood-burning kilns.
I like to work clay with simple tools,
some made from commonly used objects,
others made by me.
