Compositions on blue – 1


Refractory clay, blue slip, glazed

Fired in electric kiln at 1080ºC

2019, Alexandre Carvalho


In this work, I tried to obtain asymmetry. In many of the drawing sketches to plan the pieces, I found myself doing asymmetrical forms, which I find more dynamic and interesting. Personally, I am very happy with this piece because it is both empty and full at the same time, and defines so many different forms depending on the observer’s perspective.

This piece is part of the work created for an exhibition entitled “Compositions on blue and ceramic studies” which took place in gallery Espaço Q, between 8 and 27 June 2019,  and featured abstract paintings and ceramic pieces surrounding the theme of blue (see link to the Facebook album of the inauguration).

In this group of works I tried different combinations of slip and glazes, in order to achieve the widest possible range of blues.
