"In my practice I hand build sculptures with the method coiling. I choose to expose the coil, therefore to expose the process that is often hidden in most ceramic work. I champion this process and celebrate the history of craft and ceramics. I find inspiraring the first primitive objects made out of clay from the  'Jomon' period in Japan and my approach to making is influenced by the Bauhaus.

 

I use the coil as a drawing method, by analogy to how draughtsmen use a pencil. I like to think that I am ‘taking a coil for a walk’, an expression I borrow from Paul Klee’s expression: ‘drawing is taking a line for a walk’. When I am making a piece of work, I know where I want to start and have a notional idea of how I may want it to look like. Frequently the work takes me on a material and narrative journey and as I progress I make decisions to shape the final form different to the one I had in mind. I let the form be, and I let serendipity happen in the search for a new structural complexity.

 

In a world that is becoming digitalised, I have created a relationship with clay where my hands act like an analogue 3D printer and as a result my sculptures echoes the aesthetic of this technology." - EUSEBIO SANCHEZ
