Plates I: Sculptural Drawings;
sculpture, porcelain, glaze, oxides.
Irreverence, playfulness, vitality and personal narrative for this on going project.
This work arase from my experimental research in drawing. In this sense, these extremely thin porcelain plates should be seen as an extension of my skhetchbook.
I create porcelain plates and immediately put aside its functional aspect, to work these thin sheets of porcelain to take note of my thoughts, ideas and projects, to scribble these items in the same way I do on papers.
Here I work intuitively and spontaneously, with an experimental approach to the material, to capture the balance between thoughts and gestures, abstraction and representation, guided by my compulsive need to map and draw on everything I produce: to transform everything as a medium to map and tell, to push the boundaries of Drawing in a fresh direction.
Porcelain tableware are made to satisfay basic functionalities and be visually appealing.
Here I play with the disorientation we feel when the expectation towards ceramics is not fulfilled.
The functional aspect in the art, and the way in which we interact with domestic objects, inspires me. It gives me the opportunity to rediscover in the common everyday object, not the standardized image, but its spectrum of action on tactile sense and creativity.
