Ilse De Pourcq is a student at the department glass and ceramics at Luca school of arts, Gent Belgium.
Most of her work revolves around matter. The matter depents on a question...so is the form. How far can you manipulate the matter or how can you preserve it in its most original way ? How do you take the matter beyond the visual aspect ? What sound comes forth, what about weight? And how do you make this happen?
The matter goes further on in the pottery she is doing. The skin of the glaze on the skin of the ceramic , the reactions of the raw materials on each other.The not knowing and waiting for the kiln to be opend again to discover what happend.
