Gisele Buthod-Garcon - The Clay, Simply

Publisher Prisme

ISBN 9782930451251

Idea Code 18215

Gisèle Buthod-Garçon’s passion for clay was awakened in Senegal in 1979. The raw aspect of clay, the burning vivacity it offers, and its carnal appearance are at the heart of this attraction. Since adopting ceramics and starting to work professionally in 1982, she has continually experimented. All of her work is conditioned by her use of a specific method known as raku firing. Oily enamel and raku seem irreconcilable, yet the artist has become recognised on the basis of this paradox, able to combine rough surfaces and formal harmony. This catalogue with texts by various authors is published on the occasion of an exhibition of Buthod-Garçon’s work at Keramis in Belgium.
