Zélie Rouby - Blue Jar - Série Organique - 20 kg
France - 2000-Present - Ceramic

Blue jar, from the Organic series. Manufacturing year 2018.

Jar shaped by hand made of crashed sandstone. Addition of a light blue engobe to outer side and a textured chamotted dark blue-green engobe to inner side. Cooked at 1300 degrees. The jar is pierced at the bottom so that it may be left outside.

"From the beginning, what nourishes my work is the theme of life.
With handmade techniques working on the form, material and colour, I try to give life to this mineral substance, the sandstone.
Out of the frozen, hard and cold form, I try to evoke an envelope, a flexible and inhabited skin, an organic matter. "
