Laydet, Nastasia

When I'm creating, I think of the clay's journey through my fingers, the mysterious story behind its existence and the story I'll be able to tell thanks to it. This marvellous ability to memorize and absorb our gestures and emotions opens up infinite possibilities for expression and sharing. So I'm more interested in the process and what I want to convey through the material than in the final object. Whether it's the rough, incisive cut of a wall, the lively, expressive passage of the rice brush over the clay or the delicate work of a lip. I exploit this potential of the material to propose a sensory and visual journey through simple lines, sometimes rough or delicate, and expressive decors. This duality between raw and delicate aesthetics is a tribute to nature, to its infinite cycle of destruction and creation, and to the life drive that animates every being.


The beauty of everyday life and the quest for simple happiness also form the basis of my approach. The objects I create, though aesthetically pleasing, are in reality only a pretext for creating a moment. A moment that I hope will be marked by gentleness, sharing and awareness of the present moment. This manifests itself in the choice of ceramics for particular uses, such as tea ceramics, bowls, hidden details or shapes inducing a particular grip.
