The Moving Body

The beauty of the body, its volume and shape, is not just a question of surfaces.
The human body and its movement are a reflection of an expression of the human soul.
Clay is the best material to convey the feeling of “elan vital” of this body shape

The complex process consist in finding the proper pose, the balance between inner and outer tension, containment and expressiveness… altogether without losing the classical sense of harmony and eurythmy, i.e. the rythm, that steadily scrolls the whole body, as in a musical symphony.
