Ingrid Van Muster



I throw

I distort

I tear

I make matt glazes from crushed stones and bake them at 1320°.

I often open the kiln and dull pieces await me... But there at the back, what a treat! Rich with stars or lichen, with reminders of Cévennes and the freedom of childhood, lurks a wild, unexpected piece!

I don’t look for things. I welcome them. Glazing is a complex, demanding technique. But when everything is sorted and under control, I want to give the glazing process the freedom that is indispensable for emotion. And so, sometimes, when I open the kiln, I come across objects of beauty that remind me of something nearby or far away. So I get back to the wheel and throw a bowl, a ring – basic shapes – that tells me stories of a planet that we will never inhabit, but where we can lose ourselves for a moment, stories of skies, rocks, water...
