BIARNÉS Emili, céramist

I live ceramics with fascination and obsession. I am fascinated by the language of the earth, the ability of fire to define form and time.
I am obsessed by being one more element of this magma, leaving a temporary mark, intervening ...
Being where the eye is located as an objective, the mind as a subjective screen.

Emili Biarnés' work

The poetic and ceramic language of Biarnés is composed of an impressive metallic chromatic range. This is combined with a deeply textured red clay where sometimes inlays of metal pieces are mixed.

He elaborates objects by applying the techniques of "Metallic Chandeliers" in limited series or unique pieces with the implicit intention of conditioning individual or collective living spaces.
