With a passion for modelling, Emmanuel Chevrel trained with numerous ceramists, specialising in pottery from the outset, more than 15 years ago. Originally from Paris, he opened his workshop in Burgundy on account of its beautiful landscapes, the opportunity to change rhythm and the space to be creative.
His ‘Play’ series, a game of construction and patience, is composed of hybrid modules that fit together, full of contrasts between ceramic materials. The grainy texture of stoneware and the glossy appearance of glazed earthenware. The roundness of conical shapes and the taut lines of the white elements. The clear shapes of the modules and the cracks, the fragility of the tears. The lightness of the shapes and the weight of the clay...
The intention also lies in the trans-temporal contrast between the archaic jar and objects with an industrial spirit, the minimalist contemporaneity of earthenware pieces.
This set of shapes, textures and colours opens multiple combinations, giving everyone the freedom to compose their own creations.
