Aude Van Ryn
Le Guardien by London-based ceramicist and illustrator Aude Van Ryn. This decorative terracotta sculpture belongs to a collection of one-off works exclusively for The New Craftsmen. Taking inspiration from various sources, from ethnographic photographs, architecture to graphic design, Aude’s works are surprising and playful. The use of terracotta and a variety of glazes enable Aude to manipulate shape, texture and colour to achieve warm and graphic results. Some sculptures emphasise movement while others are more rigid in form including small totems, strange figures, buildings and organic shapes. Regardless, each one is intriguing, with the human form a recurring theme in Aude’s work whether abstract or figurative.
