MARIONNEAU Brigitte, Sculpture, ceramic

« I am a sculptor.


I chose the terracotta. The terracotta choses me. It was an obvious destiny.

I learned from all its possibilities. I could not confront myself to another medium. A hard medium, dense, which required a physical power balance in my actions.
With terracotta, there is a very smooth relation, very sensual, very active. It is a very soft work.”
