A ceramist and a potter, Xavier Maffre sometimes wounds his clay around a rope, often models it onto a tower and always fires it in the crimson opening of his Dragon kiln (Anagama). He enjoys the rough softness of red earth, functional and beautiful objects, the hardness re endows to the softness of clay.
The only and perhaps last craftsman to practice the rope technique, Xavier Maffre brings to life pieces that no one else can produce. Around assembled wood rods that outline the projected shape, the artisan wounds a rope that will be modelled with clay.
This technique enables the production of impressive and huge pieces. The rope and the rods are removed before ring. For Créations Dragonfly, Xavier Maffre has accepted to use rope to leave an imprint on the outside of his creations too. Indeed, we wanted to reveal the invisible, to enhance this unique know-how and help preserve it in our own way.
