Marc Ricourt reinterprets the ancient utilitarian form of the vessel. He turns his work on a traditional lathe and intricately carves and treats the surfaces through bleaching, dyeing or applying ferrous oxide. He conjures up organic shapes that recall seed-pods and the undulating edges of leaves, carved as delicate linear fins.
Ricourt’s work is held in international public collections, including Musée des Pays de L’Ain, France, The Center for Art in Wood, USA, and the ASU Art Museum, Tempe, USA.
