The power of Goodbye


The power of goodbye
di Manuela Metra

The last decade, really 11 years, I researched a lot about high fire glazes. Galzes are the most difficult aspect in ceramic. Everythig starts from raw materials, and from an idea, an emotion. After a lot of mistakes, wrong kilns and successes I found what I was looking for. It is time for the power of goodbye, for everything that is finished. The time of celebration the time to let go. It is the time only for the present. A brand new day, a brand new kiln, photos, pieces, stories, breakfast, tea time. The New is based on the past but is something different.

Durante l’ultimo decennio, in verità 11 anni, ho dedicato moltissimo tempo alla ricerca degli smalti da alta temperatura. Gli smalti sono la parte più complessa della ceramica. Ogni cosa parte dalle materie prime, poi, da una suggestione, un’idea-emozione. Dopo molti errori, forni sbagliati, e successi, ho trovato quello che stavo cercando. E’ così arrivato il tempo della forza dell’addio, per tutto quello che è finito. Il momento per festeggiare e lasciare andare. Il Nuovo è basato sul passato, ma è qualcosa di differente.
