Thierry Luang Rath


Stoneware that plays with shadow and light and texture. Initially self-taught, Thierry Luang Rath came to his craft through a love of the material, of the clay. He then honed his skills with more formal training. His process is intricate and time-consuming, “Once I have the bowl, I push the clay inward using tools I’ve whittled or created myself. I push the material several times (up to 15 times even) in the same place with smaller and smaller tools. Worked this way, the wall becomes richly endowed with a complex pattern of hollows and bumps.” Following this exacting but creative work, Luang Rath fires each object with enamel on the interior of the bowl, leaving the exterior in its raw form.
