Jean Paul Landreau (France)
The work of Jean Paul Landreau is built up with slabs of clay. Often a kind of vases and flat bowls or wallobjects. The decoration is very rich and colourfull. He treats the surface of the work the same as a painter uses canvas.
He uses coloured slibs (engobes) layer over layer to decorate on a leatherhard surface. The last layer is always a decoration with coloured dots of slib, made with a kind of pipette. After the first fire (biscuit) the pieces are glazed translucent and fired again on 1150 degrees Celcius.
