Melanie Bourget

Paris Art Web - Sculpture - Melanie Bourget Melanie Bourget | French

The art of Melanie Bourget focuses on the human being. She creates figurative sculptures in a contemporary yet a little offbeat style, oscillating between realism and fantasy. Then, she subjects them to the raku technique. Heads, busts and torsi of women with crazy hairstyles, mysterious features and dreamy little faces are in few words the poetic and fragile characters that live in the world of Melanie Bourget. These ceramic artworks are alive; they transmit deep and mixed feelings; through the cracks of glaze we can see with accuracy, the human soul.

The raku’s unpredictable results and intense colors are two important elements in the creation process of Melanie Bourget. Step by step, and on their own, the characters will define their unique personalities. Melanie Bourget gets to know more about the figures she creates, as the raku process moves forward. Her dialogue with her artworks is permanent, surprising and unique. Even giving names to these characters becomes a difficult exercise: they want to be totally free.

The technique applied by Melanie Bourget, the raku (楽焼 raku-yaki), is a type of Japanese pottery that is traditionally used in the Japanese Tea Ceremony, most often in the form of tea bowls. It is traditionally characterised by being hand shaped rather than thrown; fairly porous vessels, which result from low firing temperatures; lead glazes; and the removal of pieces from the kiln while still glowing hot. In the traditional Japanese process, the fired raku piece is removed from the hot kiln and is allowed to cool in the open air.

 

However, the familiar technique of placing the sculpture in a container filled with combustible material, introduced by Paul Soldner, is not a traditional raku practice. Raku techniques have been modified by contemporary potters and artists worldwide.

Duo, Trio...

 

Mostly women, few men, sometimes children, couples, or even animals, the creatures of Melanie Bourget assume their unique personalities and obvious interactions. They allow themselves to be and live together, as if they knew each others for years, even without any apprehension of the artist herself or of the viewers. The daily life of the ceramics of Melanie Bourget is full of exchange, friendship and love. This total harmony suddenly created by placing two or three sculptures together reflects the endless emotion embedded within each character, each artwork.
