Gilles Le Corre


All of my pots are mostly thrown on the potters wheel. The shapes are then freely manipulated and incised marks are applied to the soft stoneware clay to give a subtle, tactile clay surface. I am fascinated by experimenting with high fired glazes and have developed a method of applying the different colors in multiple layers to produce a rhythmic pattern. The shapes I make are cylindrical forms, tall thin vessels, curved bowls, tea bowls and large platters purposely simplified to allow the surface texture to express itself.
