Selection of photos I took this weekend
Jingdezhen, Porcelain town of China
Muscular potters throwing a giant porcelain POT
I need this…
Either giant pots
or tiny clay ninjas
either way this is awesome
How the fuck are they going to fire it though?
I’m guessing they have a large kiln or something to handle it or it’ll be underground? Not sure.
You can build kilns around things, but there are REALLY GIANT KILNS
Olivier de Sagazan
TransfigurationFor more than 20 years, Olivier de Sagazan has developed a hybrid practice that integrates painting, photography, sculpture, and performance. In his existential performative series Transfiguration, which he began in 2001, de Sagazan builds layers of clay and paint onto his own face and body to transform, disfigure and take apart his own figure, revealing an animalistic human who is seeking to break away from the physical world. At once disquieting and deeply moving, this new body of work collapses the boundaries between the physical, intellectual, spiritual and animalistic senses. The artist states: “I am interested in seeing to what degree people think its normal, or even trite, to be alive.”
Olivier de Sagzan’s works are utterly and truly horrifying. There is something so utterly disgusting and repelling about his sculptures that I cannot help but be drawn towards them.

Some photos I’ve taken today on my way to Porth & back. I will be working from these for now towards the exhibition.
I think I will still use one of my analogue cameras for the final product, either the Smena or TLR (most likely the TLR).
I edited some to see what I could do with the visuals
Ideas anyway … Let’s see where this goes.Some photography & ideas Some photos I’ve taken today on my way to Porth & back. I will be working from these for now towards the exhibition.
