Xavier Mañosa – Céramiste

Xavier Mañosa est très certainement un des céramistes les plus novateurs du moment

 

APPARATU

 

Sa formation de designer industriel joue un rôle important dans son travail de céramiste. Son audace le distingue fondamentalement des autres céramistes contemporains. Il ose le mélange des matériaux et explore de nouvelles formes d’expression. Le film « Wheel lesson » montre ce savoir faire familiale. Le père Juan Mañosa tourne une pièce d’une forme parfaite – le fils Xavier produit pièce sur pièce pour copier le vase du Maître. De cette unique leçon de tournage   naît une multitude de formes – une nouvelle collection de vases.

Coming from a family of ceramists, what was your relationship with ceramics during your childhood?
Every day after shool I had to come to the workshop because my parents didn’t trust me to be left home alone. The weekends, Christmas, the summer, they were all spent in the workshop. I basically hated ceramics. I didn’t feel like it was anything special.

What’s the story behind the family business?
My father was the one who started with ceramics. At 17, he met a Portuguese ceramist, Mr. Boni. I remember him because he used to come to the studio, always wearing a tilted hat. Even after sixty years in Spain, Mr. Boni spoke only Portuguese, so my father learned to make ceramics like that, without words. My uncle was a sculptor and he was considered the artistic soul of the family, but my father was more spartan, he just started making things because he liked ceramics, without thinking too much. When he met my mother, the three of them decided to set up a business and began making all sorts of pieces, from vases to figurines. When my uncle decided to leave the business, my parents moved the workshop from Cerdanyola to Sant Cugat, and that’s where I was born.
