Jean-Nicolas Gérard

This documentary follows French slipware potter Jean-Nicolas Gérard as he prepares for his 2013 exhibition at the Goldmark Gallery

Jean-Nicolas Gérard was born in Brazzaville (Congo) in 1954 and returned to France in 1961. Jean-Nicolas describes himself as an artisan craftsman who, above all, wants his pottery to be used and enjoyed. His work ranges from small mugs, bowls, plates and dishes to large jars and press moulded platters. All are decorated with slip and many with sgraffito and finger marks. He takes the tradition of European slipware and infuses it with elements from modern painting, medieval earthenware and Japanese pottery. In the film we watch him throwing, glazing and decorating and explore the influences that nature and his surrounding landscape have on his pottery.

Masakazu Kusakabe

Firing pots with Masakazu Kusakabe in his Super Smokeless Kiln – Fukushima, Japan.

Kusakabe likes to imbue his ceramic vessels and tea ceremonial wares with his love of nature and the cosmos.

“For me, the kiln is the universe in miniature. Inside is the big bang where bright firelight, galaxies, and stars (my pieces) are born. On a wood-fired teabowl, the drips of the glaze resemble a nebula in the dark sky or shooting stars across the dark void of space while spots of glaze create the stars of a far away constellation that sparkle with the energy and spirituality of the maker”

Oribe is a visual style named after the late 16th century tea master Furuta Oribe (1544-1615), protégée and successor of Sen no Rikyu. It was the first use of the colored stoneware glaze by Japanese potters. Green copper glazes and geometric patterns were quite often featured. For creating the brilliant green color, wares are fired using oxidation at 1220 degrees Celsius. If these conditions are not met, the glaze may become brown or red.
