Jean-Philippe Razzanti set up a workshop at the back of his garden in La Seyne-sur-mer (South of France) 300m from the sea... The shapes of his products are quite usual but they are reinvented by the Corean traditional technique called Raku.
It is like a second house with succeding rooms. At the entrance it is the modeling space then the drying space. At the back, there is a large room with the kiln, it is all soot blackened from floor to ceiling. From the open window, he takes out in the most delicate way, the incandescent pieces and put them on the sawdust ready outside...
It is a very particular technique that needs to take the pieces out from the hot kiln unlike the classical prossess for which we would wait until it cools down to see the final result.
When the incandescent enamel comes into contact with the sawdust, it cracks "in song" to obtain a very unique piece.
