Two ceramic artists – Canada

 

Sophia Clay Art  —  Sophia SoHyun Kim, Vancouver

 

“I have discovered that the inspirations of working with clay, developing the textures of reliefs and using cut outs to be energizing. Throwing clay on the potter’s wheel, in particular, can be addictive as it is quiet and personal; it is like a meditation for me as I have to center myself  before I can center the clay.  Art in all mediums has a power of transformation but for me clay has a unique capability. I have explored many different facets of clay while studying at the Emily Carr University.

The textures on my ceramic wares are inspired by bark and trees are my obsession these days. My fascination with tree barks started while taking pictures of the textures of oaks, birches, pine trees and aspens in the Pacific Northwest. I have been mesmerized that they all seem to have scars on their barks that express their identity and journey. My ceramics are washed in a matte white slip over rich red clay, then etched, marked and scarred to reflect the burnished texture of birch bark with a rustic nature focus. I find the presence of trees to be soothing and comforting and this influences my ceramic art.”

Ken Lumbis, Alberta

 

“My professional career has primarily followed a pathway in biological disciplines. I spent many years as a biologist studying small bird and waterfowl populations. Throughout this period, however, I was always involved in artistic endeavours that were informed by bird and habitat observations across western Canadian rural and wilderness landscapes.  The opportunity to observe these lands from both the air and ground allowed me to develop an appreciation for the juxtaposition of different habitats and land forms as well as their textures and colours throughout the seasons.”

“While the biologist in me may have been focusing on the science of the landscapes, the artist side of me was focusing on the beautiful abstract nature of the natural environment. For many years, I have drawn on this reserve of images to develop both representational and abstract works, primarily in stained glass and photography. During the last few years, I have broadened my artistic pursuits to include clay sculpture and pit-firing techniques. Pit firing represents an intriguing exploration of probabilities. The application of various materials and fire create organic patterns across a ceramic landscape. It is always exciting to uncover a piece from the ashes and to see if the firing has produced the anticipated effects.”

An eclectic selection of ceramic vessels of various style and age, with an emphasis on form and decorative designs, that serve to enhance the objects shape. Whether a ceramic piece is handbuilt, thrown on a wheel or made from a mold cast construction, the adaptability and versatility of clay allows for a multitude of permutations in the design. The texture and chosen decoration can be the key factor for the choice of form or conversely, the decoration is adapted to the created form.
The curve of a singular contour line can be enough to hold appeal for a particular form without any further decoration required. If anything, a succinct focus on a form contributes to the appeal of the shape. Complex and busy details can also fit more appropriately on very basic forms like a cylinder or sphere and certain styles can even add shape to the form. Alternating shades within the decorative panels adds depth and highlights aspects and angles within the form.
Changing designs and colors on the perpetual curvature of a form leads to the notion of infinity, expansion and a sense of anticipation along with the dynamic between concealment and overt display. The dichotomy of combining the lines of a straight sided vessel against relaxing sinuous curves also presents a powerful dynamic. Vertical lines make a shape appear to be taller and more slender, horizontal lines make an object appear to be more grounded. Curvy lines are more inviting , while rigid, angular ones make a shapes seem more aloof. ( see Riedizioni I – Aldo Londi) This article displays examples of these design considerations.
Over many millennium, numerous clay form designs have come into fruition and fortunately, a healthy proportion of them have survived, to be admired, marveled and act as a source of inspiration from the past.

Art Deco exuberance

 

After the war, between the 20’s and 30’s, there was an exuberance of style and pursuit of luxury, fueled by woman entering the workforce and lines of credit being available for the first time with the marketing masterstroke in the form of the lay-by. For integration of style elements, there was probably never a more complete symbiosis then that which occurred between architecture, furniture, graphics, fashion and decorative objects in Art Deco. The expanding movie industry at this time also promoted Art Deco and the aspiration for elegance and the high life.
With the evolution of the Art Deco lifestyle and its accompanying fashion designs in the 30’s, this coincided with an  increasing interest in international travel, sporting activities and greater leisure pursuits. This led to an increased demand for  more comfortable attire while simultaneously reflecting a streamlined chic that followed the emerging  trends in design. Freedom of movement in garments became a pivotal consideration, with ornate detail giving way to a more elegant simplicity which could be adapted to the willowy, lithesome lines of the more slender bodies. As women became more financially independent, they dressed with a more liberated style which was mirrored in outfits that were symbolically more flowing and less constricted. Floral fabric decorations were combined with dynamic geometric and abstract patterns highlighted with vivid colors.

The eclectic Art Deco designs successfully drew inspiration from the cubist, fauvist, futurist and surrealist movements including the Ballet Russes theater designs. Corsets had fallen out of favor along with the prudish, Victorian turn of century values. Cumbersome bustles had magically morphed into their opposite with revealing backless and sleek dresses. The rapidly developing consumerist society wanted style and quality and fabrics like soft crepe, chiffon and satin became desirable for their sleekness and elegance. Innovative seaming was utilized to allow for the appearance of more sensual body contours while adhering to a traditional allure of classical femininity, supporting this enormous upheaval of chic.

Illustrators and artists such as Dorte Clara Wolff , Tamara de Lempicka, Gyula Batthyány, Maurice Picaud and Louis Icart all embraced this exhilarating shift in style. Sculptors and ceramicists like Franz Hagenauer, Lorfenzl, Dunand, Royal Dux, Wayland Gregory, Pierre le Faguays, Erte and Demetre Chipuly also had a critical influence in defining this exuberant era of fashion and design. Famous couturiers, such as Paul Poiret, Coco Channel, Sonia Delaunay and Henry Marque beautifully interpreted the mood and trends into stunning designs and original creations.

Loïc Thérien

“If I take a look behind my almost 40 years as a potter, a clear trend is emerging: that of letting the earth and the heat speak and favoring their natural expression, first by working the forms to purify and adapt them to the type of glaze to come, then giving the maximum space for cooking and the chance that it generates. Thus, after having explored salt glazes, I am now happy or sorry for the random and capricious formation of crystals.”

“My work is strongly inspired by Asian art, especially Japanese. The work of the textures and the fire effects of cooking with wood and gas, fascinate me and characterize my utilitarian pieces.”

“Sometimes I interpret, sometimes I compose and always I learn, I learn. I work sandstone and porcelain. I mainly make utility pottery in connection with the preparation, cooking and serving of food. I take special care to produce quality objects that can be appreciated in their daily use.”

“My enamels are made of clay picked respectfully at the belly of our mother earth. I decline it pure in a deep brown, lengthened with salts to find a rustic flavor or mixed with wood ashes for the depth of the sunny ocher. High temperature fire reveals all of its immense alchemical power.”

“Clay plasticity is a great playground that fuels my creative breath. I want to give life to this material that thinks itself in three dimensions, embodying it in objects of sharing and everyday poetry. I am both an artist who explores the sensitivity of the earth and a craftswoman who works to produce objects of comfort and refinement. My production is made of porcelain. I favor this clay for its qualities of brightness and finesse of work. The harmony of shapes, light and textures is at the heart of my work.”

Emmanuel Dufour

 

“Inspired by the industrial revolution of the nineteenth century I draw each of my pieces with pear and brush. I cook my high-temperature gas oven parts to give an old newspaper effect to my drawings. This high cooking temperature allows my parts to achieve total vitrification and keep the bare earth on a larger surface. I use in some cases the electric oven and so, my drawings appear with greater contrast in a pure black and white. In this case, I use a transparent glaze.”

Fabienne Synnott

Sandstone or porcelain. Shot, fashioned, carved. Single pieces or small series. Reduced cooking … sometimes with wood but most of the time with gas. I treat each piece as a composition in its own right, necessarily derived from the earth and which also keeps track of it. Nature inspires me; plant, animal, human. I like to play, to experiment, to discover, to understand, to share. I am listening to what processes and materials have to say.

Oriana Ivaniuta

 

“My meticulous main collection is inspired by several traditional Ukrainian symbols that are part of my origins. These sets, although mainly used in Ukrainian traditional embroidery and costumes, all have a very special meaning. So I take these scenery to transcribe them in my work. I find a tradition that bubbles in my veins, in my mind and nourishes my imagination. My approach is a long fantastic journey between my roots and origins as well as my personal universe where I feel and exploit different ideas, paths and convictions.”

“It is too easy to fall into a serious daily life, where the duties of life make us forget the imagination and the infinite universe of cerebral vagrancy. So I come to create a world more childish, traditional, calm and positive, to give full place to the daydream in each of us.”

“My creations are inspired mainly by my urban environment but also by nature. I shape and turn utilitarian objects with two clays: porcelain and semi-gray sandstone that I color with engobe. So much diversity to create contrasts between plant colors and concrete gray. In their everyday use, I hope my ceramics will tinge your lives with simple pleasures while allowing you to enjoy the moment.”
