A polished stoneware ceramic sculpture by the contemporary French ceramic artist, Dominic Legros. Reminiscent of wet pebbles in nature the smooth surface is created with intense hand polishing of the surface after firing to reveal variations and cracking in the surface. His stoneware is fired between 1000 and 1200°C and then smoked with the perfect control of the cracking and the amount of carbon to create the softest of hues ranging from pale grey to deep black.
Legros studied for 4 years in the workshop of Jean and Jacqueline Lerat at the School of Fine Arts in Bourges. He has created an entirely unique practice, his textural forms inspired by his collections of mineral, plants and small animal fragments.
