The exhibition offers an immersion into the world of Atelier Polyhedre, focusing particularly on their favourite material: red earthenware.
Red earthenware, which remains a humble clay used a lot for building elements such as bricks or tiles, enters here the domestic landscape through objects that participate in our daily life. A clay left in its raw state most of the time to express its strong potential and its different qualities: its colour, its fineness and its beautiful capture of light and shadows. It is sometimes glazed for use or to create contrasts in glazed, black or Sèvres blue.
From the beginning, vases have been a regular feature of Atelier Polyhedre’s production, with each time a challenge of formal and instinctive research to give meaning to these containers. It is in this context that the vases A fleur d’eau, a limited edition created for Sinople, are presented.
The second part deals more with space and presents a selection of proposals in which ceramics are deployed and take on less expected functions. Various wall consoles, a favourite object for the duo, will be presented. The question of the multiple is also addressed through ensembles that could possibly extend without beginning or end.
The exhibition will also highlight the production techniques used by the studio, in particular the use of moulds and slip casting, a practice used both as a means of reproduction and creation, between repetition and variation. A practice that also allows for a modular approach to thinking about the objects.
