Robert Rushat poterie Ravel

Unlike the principles on which today’s world is built, particularly the art world, production based on local tradition is not bound by the concept of progress at any price. To value local tradition is to take a humble view of the transmission of skills. Humility is what characterises the practice of artists who, like Rush, distance themselves from the major capitals in order to reconnect with a more global history of humanity, before it became concerned with progress and perfection.

Between Robert Rush and Poterie Ravel there exists a dialogue that is part vernacular, part contemporary; the embodiment of a coexistence with and humility towards pre-existing forms.
