the ultimate crystaline

Every time the subject of crystaline comes up on the list I think back to
Hatfield, England 2006. I met Alain Fichot there. His English bad, my French
even worse, but his pots..ahh!
Instead of trying to describe, I`ll pass along his site.
I`m not a particular fan
of crystaline. Most of what little I`ve seen are sort of garish. The
crystals such a
contrasting colour on a piece whose form is an afterthought. Most I`d rather
see on a tile, if then.
Alain`s work is on a different plane altogether. His forms, exquisite.

Best wishes from Lela
