Magic in Clay

Service Grenouille by Claire Briant

I recommend a visit to the beautiful new blog from potter/sculptor/writer Claire Briant in Brittany. Claire lives and works in an old stone farmhouse in the Forest of Broceliande, and creates beautiful objects inspired by myth, symbolism, and the mythic landscape.

You may remember Claire's workspace (shared with painter Yoann Lossel) featured in the "On Your Desk" series, back in June. She was also part of an "Around the Table" discussion, with Yoann, over on the John Barleycorn blog.

"Myth must be kept alive. The people who can keep it alive are the artists of one kind or another. The function of the artist is the mythologization of the environment and the world."
- Joseph Campbell
