Palplation
... is the process of diagnosing by the sense of touch

Who is touching and who is receiving?
What is the "space" between them?
How far does the touch go? Can we measure it?
What shows that the touch did not happen formally, but in a dialogue?
What remains after touch?
Do we need presence if we have touch?

From the very beginning, clay feels for me like a body, as if I am massaging the clay... I rarely focus on the surface itself; I observe the dynamics of movements inside the clay, the spots of tensions and emptiness, the centers. Sometimes I feel that the willpower of the material is stronger than my intentions and all I can do is to listen and follow... then, well, who is touching?

2 sculptures, unprocessed Brili clay, glaze, fired at 1050℃
