Alexandru Murar works on the potter's wheel—a singularity from which all forms are generated—a morphic field that sends into existence living shapes. Although each thrown shape has its polarity and its implicit structure, it can also become part of an ensemble of a higher order. The acts of pouring and grabbing are often reminded of in Murar's work through the use of handles and spouts. He uses sections of domestic pots as building blocks, to create equivocal vessels or sets of objects.
Rhythm, repetition, symmetry and polarity are innate elements in Murar's work due to his background in production throwing. Traditional techniques are challenged in a contemporary context. Form, function and harmony are explored as an undivided whole, with integrity in making and honesty to the material.
