Eric makes ceramic plates. He uses the low status of ceramics as one of the readings in his practice, questioning the prejudices that surround this medium. Whether the prejudice is good or bad, it is the first filter that the work is viewed through.His ceramic plates exist not as containers for fruit, although they can be used in that way, nor as subdued decorative objects, although they rely on decoration. He undertakes to make something that emphasizes the proximity of thought and feeling in our relationship to things, an inanimate object that gives a cuddle and takes a modest art position.
