May way to pottery, part 2: Unfortunately the potter class was over after six month. So my teapot was there on a shelve and waited, but: I forgot to pick it up – do you remember? I was seventeen and looking back it seems I had a lot of more important things to do:-). It is a petty, of course, and I would love to have the teapot with me, discussing form and technique just now. But it is gone. Well, for the next ten years I stopped working with clay and pots. I spent all my time at the University, first at the department of Architecture in Zurich, then I changed to the department of Philosophy, studying History of Art and German. Why I changed? I become a quite young mother and I realized that it was impossible to combine the Architecture studies with my newborn baby. Everybody who studied at the Department of Architecture in Zurich, knows why. Btw: I have three daughters. But this is another story. So, the mentioned ten years later, I saw a notice at the University about a potter weekend in the mountains. I decided to go there. It was about Raku. I wanted to make a butter can and this was a very bad idea: Raku is not the best technique for a butter can. Nevertheless it was many years with us and we were amazed about all the fat spots. My husband – still the same as today and the one who takes most of the photos for my instagram feed: Thank you! @gion.andriu.artist – loved this work. But to be honest, I was quite happy when it broke into two because I hated the fat spots …….. I am not Joseph Beuys. Why this butter can was full of fat and dissolved more or less? At this time, I suspected: The pottery seems to be an endless field with a lot of questions. After the teapot and butter can experience I changed the subject: I wanted to create something for the house I built – yes, I was back to Architecture. So I started my third experience with clay: I began with tile production. That was in 1998. #ceramics #tile #gold #stoneware #architecture #artwork #pottery #series #colors #handmade #craft #clay #making #pattern #dots #project #abstract #perfect #contemporaryart #zurich #switzerland #art #photo #scene #modern #japan #elegant #korea #china #exhibition
