Stoneware bottle made by hand in the workshop in the Parisian suburbs of Catherine Dix Ceramics.
Catherine lives and works in Paris/Montreuil.
She has been developing for almost a year a work around the bottle. Object a priori of daily life but which it diverts from its primary function. The bottle becomes a sculpture or a vase, a tripod creature, sometimes perched high or evoking a headless cocotte. The interpretation is free.
The work of Catherine Dix Ceramics is a story of construction, assembly, emptiness and fullness, shadow and light. She evolves instinctively by confronting forms, changing places, starting again with others and, gradually, the balance is achieved. Catherine Dix finds an echo in constructivist and brutalist architecture, but also in primitive pottery, with a sensitivity for simple and well-constructed objects.
