Marina Bauguil Ceramic Figures
These magical pieces are handcrafted in the UK by the esteemed ceramists Marina Bauguil.
Inspired by a range of cultural sources, Marina's work explores her relationship with and reverence for the world of nature. She believes that human beings need a strong relationship with the natural world in order to live a balanced life.
We were once deeply connected – through our hearts – to forests, rivers, mountains, plants and animals, and our modern way of life is eroding this connection.
'As in animism (the belief that natural objects, natural phenomena, and the universe itself possess souls), Marina aims to create pieces filled with breath, spirit and life. Hence, she uses the Japanese word kami (a divine being or spirit in Shinto religion) to describe her work. Marinas hope is that her pieces will inspire the viewer to rekindle the relationship between their own inner nature and the natural world.'
Marina often begins with a meditative approach when starting a piece, working intuitively as she goes. Paper porcelain is her preferred medium, but she also uses other clay bodies. Each piece is fired multiple times.
