Exposición 20 y 21 de noviembre
'De barro y aire', de Mercedes Bellido. Madrid (calle Velarde, 14).
El poder del barro
Mud is a primordial material, made up of two of the main elements that make up our planet: land and water. In addition, it has very spiritual connotations the fact of molding from "nothing" and obtaining something as delicate and beautiful as ceramic.
La cerámica y los cuatro elementos
In the ceramic process, the four elements appear: earth and water to obtain the mud, air to dry the piece and the fire of the kiln to fire the pieces. I have always been attracted to ceramics, when I was little in Zaragoza there was a craft fair and remember that there was always a potter who always gave me a piece, I loved to see the wheel turn and the apparent ease with which he modeled clay.
