I love these sculptures!!!! They are made with beautiful handling and finishing. Very modern, yet rustic. Also, I was a bit concerned to have something delicate shipped such a distance, but Olivier was so professional, packing it very well and getting it to me much quicker than expected. I am very proud to add these to my art collection. Thank you much!

This is my first purchase using Etsy and I must say I could not have been more pleased. Not only was the work more beautiful than it was in the photo it arrived from Spain to my home in San Diego, CA in less than a week! Olivier Grau is a young, imaginative artist who combines cultures, techniques, modern and old to create unique works of art. His art makes you think and feel. I can not wait to see what he does next.

About

From the design to clay, from the computer to hands.

Five year ago I decided make a travel to an unknown world: ceramics. As a creative director and graphic designer in my own advertising agency, I felt that my hands were tired of holding every day the mouse. So I decided to change the Photoshop tools for another real tools and dirty my hand with the clay. This was a travel with a unique direction and with and unexpected end: I felt in love with ceramics world and change my life completely.

So this has been a travel to the design to clay, from the computer to hands... Apparently this is a travel to the modernity to the tradition, is a come back to origins. But always with the graphics designs in my eyes and the Photoshop tools in my fingers.

Ceramic artwork is a slowly creation that need a lot of hours and patience, for this reason ceramic objects have a paceful and relaxed soul that can be felt just touching the glaze o the clay. Houses with hand made ceramic objects, are houses more human.
