The exhibition will showcase this relationship and which we hope will explain this ideal of craftsmanship,this love of the material, worked by an ancestral know-how that Galerie Diurne has the ambition to perpetuate.In the pottery we find a combination of technique and material, a random approach that incorporates nature and enhances it.
More than just a technique, Nani Champy-Schott, one of the people responsible for the wonderful annual potter’s exhibition in Saint Sulpice Square in Paris, said of Raku that she considered it “a state of being. Let it come, accept what happens, and be in harmony with the elements that can escape us…. that is a way to tame them.”
This is what we feel when we discover the work of Jean François Delorme and this ancient oriental technique. He produced during 2016, at a rate of one per day, a set of 365 bowls, consisting of a large number of series inspired in their creation by the Raku technique.
