The word "ceramic" comes from the Greek word "keramos" meaning "clay". Many sculptors in the history of art have favored this material in order to create their works. Here are just a few of the greats: Andrea della Robbia, Giovanni della Robbia, Maurice Dhomme, Emile Gallé, Jean de Lespinasse, Félix Optat Milet, Henri Milet and Joan Miro.
Ceramics in today's jargon refers to both the art object in itself, the material, and the technique used to create it. By using the technique of ceramics, the sculptor is able to create a faience (finely glazed ceramic) or porcelain. He heats the clay (or terracotta) to different temperatures and then carves and shapes it to breathe life into the object.
The art of ceramics goes back to prehistoric times and quickly became very popular in Antiquity in the arts of the table (pottery) as well as in construction and interior decoration (tiles, tiling...). It is still a very popular technique and, thanks to the artists and their talent, has been able to renew itself to offer a new material vocabulary in line with what is fashionable and trendy at any given time.
It is common to call “ceramic art" something that does not belong to the categories previously described, and whose sole purpose is to be decorative. The creation of ceramic art goes through different stages (shaping, modeling, drying, heating) and requires a great deal of skill, mastery and patience on the sculptor’s end.
The color of the ceramic changes depending on the type of material that the sculptor has chosen to use in order to create his piece. For example, a red tint will indicate the presence of iron, while a white tint will indicate the presence of limestone, silica or kaolin.
