The authors

  • Daniel Pontoreau
    Daniel Pontoreau belongs to a generation of artists born in the aftermath of the Second World War for whom the artistic possibilities of ceramics instantaneously proved apparent. As a young artist, he was confronted, on the one hand, with the prevalence of figurative ceramic sculpture which spread throughout Europe in the post-war period, and, on the other, with the golden age of art pottery and its prevailing ideology. Yet, at the end of the “Glorious Thirties”, Daniel Pontoreau did not show a veritable interest in this culture of ceramics, which was already well entrenched in most European countries. Indeed, the teenager was fond of painting before taking up sculpture. His influences include some sculptors who are concerned with another reality of the clay, one that is more intangible and environmental. He was especially drawn to the work of American John Mason (1927) and Frenchman Jean Amado (1922-1995). With its ‘Attitudes (that) Become Forms’1, the new English sculpture movement left its mark on him, and he soon became fascinated with the relationship to the landscape in the architecture of such contemporaries as Frank Gehry (1929), Tadao Ando (1941), and Marc Barani (1957).
  • Bai Ming
    Born in 1965 about one hundred kilometres from the former imperial porcelain factories of Jingdezhen in China, Bai Ming is a is a multi-facetted visual artist. A professor and lecturer, he is director of the Department of Ceramics at the Academy of Art and Design of Qinghua University in Beijing, and of the Shangyu Celadon International Art Centre of Contemporary Ceramics. He owns two workshops in Beijing and in Jingdezhen, where he boldly mixes ancestral techniques, traditions and practices with those of international contemporary art. The delicacy of his technique in ceramics, painting and lacquer has revitalised Chinese porcelain, freeing it from its archaic forms. His creations have won major Chinese awards and are recognised by collectors around the world.
