Pierre Charpin Entre Les Vases / Amidst The Vases Mudac
The focus of the design process for Pierre Charpin is on color, volume, lines, and intended use - nothing is left to chance. Charpin's language is restrained and colorful, subtle and quiet; it is intended to inspire and stimulate the imagination, to communicate sensitive messages. Humor and playfulness also have their place.
Research projects are an important part of Charpin's work. For example, he was invited by the Centre international de la recherche sur le verre (CIRVA) to develop a series of experimental glass objects and has examined the question of ornament on ceramics at the request of the Centre de recherche sur les arts du feu et de la terre (CRAFT).
This first monograph is a reflection of Pierre Charpin's work: simple, unfussy, fluid. It foregrounds drawing as a creative process of making and translating.
