Carmen Collell

I approach and feel ceramics as a will of form, a sense of construction. Building ceramics from slabs enables me to understand the pieces as three-dimensional places whose enveloping walls become painterly surfaces as if they were the walls of a fresco. Painting over the dried clay surface with watery engobes enables it to act like a canvas and the burnishing technique provides a warm finishing that enhances the color palette.

I want to shape color and to capture in their interplay the light and colour of the Mediterranean landscape to which I feel so much attached.

It is my desire to build suggestive objects that could be present in our environment through a scale that appeals to our sense of touch, to their capacity to hold, caress and measure.
