Cage                     

porcelain, 43 cm x 20 cm x 20 cm 2008-10

The garden Massey in Tarbes in France is a favorite place for family walks. In spring and summer, this park is impressive: birdsong can be heard there, polyphonic, choral, and harmonic. The tiny bodies of the birds are invisible in the huge trees. The birdsong is diffused from various distances.
This local context led me to imagine a porcelain cage which, paradoxically cannot imprison birds. But it evokes the image of birdsong through its poetic shape and its finesse.
