Weaving clay

  • • Muriel has developed a technique for weaving porcelain threads
  • • She runs educational workshops for primary school classes
  • • In her hands, clay transforms into a lace-like structure

Muriel Lovo became inspired by ceramics while she was in professional retraining: “I came across the brochure of the Vallauris School of Fine Arts. For me, who had never touched clay, I knew that this was what I wanted to do. A few weeks later, I enrolled in the school's professional course and graduated a year later.” Clay became her means of expression. The material allows her to reveal her sensitivity, to question her emotions and to explore the fragility of nature. With the most delicate gestures, she turns clay into a fine lace-like structure, creating collections of decorative objects and lighting. More than reflecting her technical mastery, Muriel’s pieces are the expression of a deep work of research and inner reflection.

Connecting the human being to his roots

This decorative object comes as a cocoon in porcelain lace, fired at 1280 degrees celsius. The evocative title is a feeling of deep attachment to nature and our inner roots. The material used for weaving the porcelain cocoon is a metal wire covered with paper. It is sufficiently rigid to hold it in place, but also flexible so that it can be oriented differently.

Diameter 40 cm
