INTERVIEW WITH JOSIANE VÉDRINE - " As a small girl, I liked watching potters throw at the wheel and I've always thought one day I'd do that too. But it took me a while to get there. I first took recreational classes here and there for a long time. And then one day, I decided that would be my craft."
There's something about texture in ceramics that is simply irresistible. Like beauty, texture brings depth to a piece. It reaches beyond functionality to dig deep in our sensory experience. A mere useful teapot becomes your favourite when you have pleasure holding it and using it. Because ceramic is such a tactile medium (and teaware especially), the feeling and visual appeal of a piece’s surface always ends up playing a major role in our appreciation.
