Camille Le Dressay
Camille's work possesses such a strong and developed perspective and yet she is relatively new to ceramic art - she has been working on her ceramics for only four years, having previously been an interior designer for twelve years. Her sculptural pieces are in-depth studies of light - its circulation and its instantaneousness. They are first and foremost sculptures, however many can be lit from the inside and become functional as gentle light sources.
The sculptures are comprised of a continuous array of volumes, forms, and shadows. The ceramic intertwines - the lines join, mix, and merge. This creates multiple perspectives and cavities, inviting the viewer into different angles for contemplation. Her inspirations are quite numerous. Architecture's influence is very apparent in her work, but she's also inspired by natural phenomena. The immensity of terrestrial formations, both underwater and on land, and the microscopic complexity of flora and fauna both strike her as something important to consider, to preserve, and to bring into relief through her practice.
