It's a sham: the Rascar Capacs are not functional parts, even if they look like one.
They are not turned, but stamped on a turned shape. The clay is pinched, pressed, sometimes embellished with porcelain nuggets.
The intention is to play with this alphabet of shapes, feet, handles, spouts and buttons that characterizes these centuries of pottery production. And this topography will offer its hollows and rests to the glazes developed in the workshop.
It is also a celebration of the material, of the first of its exceptional qualities, plasticity, and of our original relationship with it: taking any clay pigeon and compulsively kneading it.
Red stoneware, glaze.
Biscuit fired and gas fired to 1280 °C.
Size about ø 13*45 cm.
