In their collaboration, Matthew Lutz-Kinoy and Natsuko Uchino aim for a participatory creative process and the transfer of authorship to a wider audience. The resulting ceramics are just one part of this exploratory practice, drawing patterns and forms from a variety of historical sources. Lutz-Kinoy and Uchino discuss their ceramics as historical hybrids with Daniel Baumann, touching on questions of materiality, artistic collaboration, and the purpose of conviviality.
“You try your best, but the rest is fire. The clay has its story but the real magic happens in the kiln.”
