Precious Roots porcelain sculpture
In spatial object PRECIOUS ROOTS, Margot changes the perspective and makes roots grow upwards. In the dynamics of untamed forms, she makes the invisible visible. Their strength and fragility are expressed in porcelain, which has those same properties.
Margot built this work intuitively, letting go of control over the porcelain. This allowed the work to move freely. The naturally formed openings were filled with gold using the Kintsugi technique. This is part of the Japanese philosophy where traces of breakage and repair are
seen as an important contribution to the beauty of an object. For Margot, it is also a reference to her interest in personal development.
