MARC RICOURT Handcrafted vessels by French woodturner

MASTERPIECE LONDON 28 June - 4 July 2018 https://www.masterpiecefair.com/


MARC RICOURT Ricourt sources the material for his organic wood objects from the bucolic surroundings in which he lives, translating nature into sculpture. He initially turns local wood on the lathe, intricately carves and then treats the surfaces, through bleaching, dying or an application of ferrous oxide, to create intricate works of art. Ricourt intuitively creates a perfect harmony between wood, shape, texture and colour. The artist initially draws inspiration from the historicity of the utilitarian object, the vessel form.

“ I have based my work around a simple but very essential object, as it was the first tool created and used by mankind… Useful, yet mysterious, the closed vessel symbolically holds all mysteries and secrets of the human soul. My work on vessels has allowed me to develop a relationship between ancient or geographically remote cultures and civilizations and modern creations. The most important facet of my work is the research and exploration of new forms, colours, textures and finishes.”


Ricourt works and lives near Dijon, France. He is an established artist who exhibits internationnaly and participated in prestigious fairs e.g. COLLECT, PAD London, London, Salon Art + Design NYC, Design Miami/ Basel, Design Miami, Art Paris, Art Geneve, NOMAD St Moritz. His work is part of the collection of The French Museum of Woodturning and the Arizona University State Museum and has been noted in such publications as American Woodturner, Elle DÊcor, Ateliers d’Art, Arts et Decoration, Woodturning Magazine, Hole and Corner.
