Jean Couturier

After the series of large pots with « streched walls », Jean Couturier deconstructs again these ceramics, thus was born the series of "dirty animals" as he likes to call them.

He has presented this poem several times during exhibitions:

Regarde le potier qui façonne la glaise.
Pourquoi est-il brutal ? A-t-il raison ou tort ?
Irait-il triturer cette argile à son aise,
s'il pensait que c'est la poussière de ses morts ?

Omar Khayyâm
(quatrain 114, p.92)
