Guilherme Ferias

Guilherme Ferias produces handmade and carved ceramic objects using the ‘kurinuki’ technique. This ancient Japanese technique provides spontaneity and immediacy, discovering the piece during the process of making it. Beginning with a solid mass of clay, I use a metal and/or wooden blade to shape the exterior surface. I hollow out the interior by hand with a carving tool. This technique, allows me to intently focus on the inner shape of the piece.
