Abstract [en]

The process of ceramic-making tends to bear a resemblance and a strong connection to food preparation methods, living material. ageing and ripening. It is connected to the element of fire, which helps to solidify the body of the ceramic object as well as to blend the ingredients while cooking and changing the consistence according to the recipe.

Pottery is as fragile as human-beings. Especially during the intimate act of eating, we embrace carefully our plates since we get more sensitive while being immersed into eating the served meal, our hands perform agility on its highest level, as do the hands of the dish creator. There is a mix of both aggression and fragility which fuse with the consumption, as we often do not witness any hunts or harvests and this contrast attracts me a lot. As if we would like to hide the reality behind the curves and gold plated decors of the dining sets. Tableware brings its own stories which narrate even louder when the food gradually fills the hungry belly.
