In the form of a thick magazine, this book presents the 255 glazed ceramic plates Jean-Baptiste Bernadet has produced during his 2014 summer residency at Moly-Sabata, France. In this series the artist expands his practice of oil painting on canvas into a new medium. Halfway between functional and decorative objects, the plates become the support of colored compositions that are produced by the alchemy of cooking at 1000°C and instantaneously evoke the painter's palette in his studio as atmospheric or cosmic landscapes.
