Sculpture: Ceramic, Clay, Color, Lithograph, Ink on Ceramic, Other.
The series of work called "The stories untold" is a project I had made for the Biennial of Ceramics in Andenne, Belgium. For this event I had to present work that is made in a single technique. My technique of choice was Raku firing in relation with ceramic lithography.
This work was awarded at the event with the jury's prize.
"Girl with white hands" is one of the sculptures from this series.
It is a handbuild work from chamotte clay, a very coarse one. For the portrait I used the technique ceramic lithography, which is an image transfer on clay.The transfer is made with cobalt oxide and over I had added different colors of glaze. The hands are made from a special porcelaine foil.
I had used copper glaze for the head and craquele glaze for the body.
I usually search for inspiration, for the portraits, in very old photos from the circus. After choosing the portraits I create my own "character" in clay.
