Stocky Ceramics Take on a Soft Touch Thanks to a Watercolor-Like Approach
Artist Elise Lefebvre combines the exacting edges of ceramics with a surface treatment akin to watercolor. Her chunky forms, featuring portraits of animals and people, are expressed with carefree fluidity you’d find in painting. They have diffused edges of colors that flow into one another and an uneven application of pigment you’d find in a wash that was applied with a paintbrush. This strikes a nice balance between hard and soft—an alluring visual combination.
