with Adele Brydges

Ceramic Artist

 

Adele Brydges’ ceramic creations sit perfectly and harmoniously at the crossroads between tradition and innovation. Her style and artistic projections live in a world that hovers between the tranquil inspiration of classical beauty and a vindictive voice that breaks the rules, whilst voluntarily placing itself in the absolute centre of the eye of a hurricane.

Believing that Art can be therapeutic, pleasure can be healing and sex can be sacred, Adele creates dildos and other erotic toys that are eco-friendly and aesthetically refined, allowing you to explore the art of pleasure through creation. And by learning ancient techniques used to create durable, every day objects and applying them to her pieces made for self pleasure, whilst at the same time staying true to her own tastes and sensual preferences, she has elevated the creation of utilitarian ceramic pieces to a new level.

To be welcomed into one of Adele’s East London workshops is to be invited into her innermost sanctuary, an intimate and sacred space, and the generosity implicit in this inclusive and welcoming gesture creates an immediate sense of gratitude and respect. Whether attending couples workshops, mixed sex workshops, or female – and female identifying – only workshops, your experiences will be enormously liberating, revitalising and healing. They will encourage you to go on a journey that reconnects you with creativity and self-pleasure, whilst helping you recognise that both are intrinsically intertwined and that neither of these life experiences should be seen as a final destination or a specific goal. The pleasure of creating and, in turn, using creation as a means of exploring the erotic self, lies in the journey itself – one of constant and continuous exploration and which is, according to Adele, full of seeds that will readily erupt into flower. It is for this reason that Adele’s stunning pieces are such elegant symbols of power, well-being, worth and beauty that will shamelessly open the doors to pleasure.

Discover, in this interview, the connections between her creations, her childhood and her grandmother, what she feels her most successful collaborations have been and where she feels her future and current challenges lie, in the face of the conservative, patriarchal morality.

And now, enjoy the interview!

Artista della Ceramica

 

La proposta artistica di Adele Brydges come ceramista rappresenta una perfetta e armoniosa intersezione fra tradizione e innovazione. Il suo stile, la sua progettazione e tutte le sue creazioni, si trovano a metà strada tra la serena ispirazione derivata dalla bellezza classica e il messaggio rivendicativo di una voce che rompe gli schemi e si colloca liberamente proprio nell’occhio del ciclone.

Seguendo l’idea che l’arte possa essere terapeutica, che il piacere possa guarire e il sesso essere considerato sacro, Adele realizza dildos e altri giocattoli erotici, ecologici ed esteticamente molto raffinati, che facilitano la consapevole esplorazione del piacere attraverso la creazione artistica. Apprendere un’antica tecnica di produzione di oggetti economici di lunga durata e applicarla per creare prodotti che vi permetteranno di esplorare il vostro piacere, rispecchiando a loro volta i vostri gusti e le vostre preferenze erotiche, innalza la creazione di pezzi in ceramica di uso domestico e quotidiano a un nuovo livello.

Quando Adele vi accoglie in uno dei suoi laboratori – nell’Est della città di Londra – vi sta immediatamente aprendo le porte del suo santuario, del suo spazio più intimo e sacro, e la generosità sottintesa in questo gesto di inclusione e di benvenuto, provoca all’istante una dinamica di gratitudine e rispetto, a cui nessuna delle parti coinvolte in questo scambio vorrà mai venire meno. Promuovere laboratori misti, laboratori per coppie e soprattutto laboratori solo per donne, o per coloro che si identificano come tali, crea esperienze che risultano estremamente liberatorie, rivitalizzanti e terapeutiche. I laboratori di Adele offrono un viaggio di autoconsapevolezza e di riconnessione con la creatività e l’autoerotismo, nel senso che questi ultimi sono entrambi strettamente intrecciati e che nessuna di queste esperienze di vita può essere considerata un punto d’arrivo o una meta definitiva e precisa. Il piacere di creare, e la creazione vista come esplorazione dell’io erotico, costituiscono un viaggio di ricerca costante e continua, e corrispondono – secondo Adele – a un processo pieno di semine e di fioriture. Per questo le sue opere sono eleganti segni di forza, benessere, coraggio e bellezza che vi apriranno le porte del piacere senza vergogna.

Ascoltando questa intervista, scoprirete in cosa siano legate le sue creazioni all’infanzia e alla nonna, quali siano state le sue collaborazioni più proficue fino ad oggi e da dove derivino le sue sfide maggiormente propositive contro la morale patriarcale e conservatrice.

E adesso, godetevi l’intervista!

Artista de Cerámica

 

La propuesta de Adele Brydges como ceramista presenta una perfecta y armónica intersección entre tradición e innovación. Su estilo, su proyecciones artística, y todas sus creaciones, se encuentran a mitad de camino entre la serena inspiración de la belleza clásica y el discurso reivindicativo de una voz que rompe esquemas y se posiciona con libertad en el mero centro del ojo del huracán.

Bajo la convicción de que el arte puede ser terapéutico, el placer puede ser sanador y el sexo puede ser sagrado, Adele crea dildos y otros juguetes eróticos, ecológicos y de gran refinamiento estético, que facilitan la consiente exploración del placer a travez de la creación. Aprender una técnica ancestral de fabricación de objetos utilitarios de gran perdurabilidad, y aplicarla en la elaboración de piezas que va a permitirte explorar tu propio placer, reflejando a su vez tus gustos y tus preferencias sensuales, eleva la creación de piezas de cerámica de uso doméstico y cotidiano a un nuevo nivel.

Cuando Adele te da la bienvenida a uno de sus talleres – en el este de la ciudad de Londres – te está instantáneamente abriendo las puertas a su santuario, a su espacio más intimo y sagrado, y la generosidad implícita en este gesto de inclusion y bienvenida, crea inmediatamente una dinámica de gratitud y respeto, que ningunas de las partes involucradas en el intercambio, deseará deshonrar. Facilitar talleres mixtos, talleres para parejas y especialmente talleres solo para mujeres, o para quienes se identifican como una, crea experiencias que son enormemente liberadoras, revitalizantes y curativas. Los talleres de Adele facilitan un viaje de reconocimiento y reconexion con la creatividad y el auto placer, entendiendo que ambos están intrínsecamente entrelazados, y que ninguna de estas experiencias de vida puede ser considerada un destino final, o una meta definitiva y específica. El placer de crear, y la creación como exploración del yo erótico, constituyen una aventura de investigación constante y continua, y responden – según Adele – a un proceso lleno de siembras y de florecimientos. Por ello sus piezas son elegantes gestos de poder, bienestar, valor, y belleza que te abrirán las puertas del placer sin vergüenza.

Descubre escuchando esta entrevista que tienen que ver sus creaciones con su infancia y con su abuela, cuales han sido sus mas nutritivas colaboraciones hasta la fecha y donde radican sus mas constructivos desafíos frente a la moral patriarcal conservadora.

¡Y ahora, disfruten la entrevista!
