Formele şi ornamentica ceramicii de Horezu. Între tradiţie şi modernitate

  • Subiect: „The Thracian-Dacian, Greek, Roman and Byzantine overlapping traditions could be easily identified in the Romanian pottery, with all the adaptations and transformations imposed by the peasant life necessities and taste. Thus, in the Horezu pottery, the preservation of the traditional influence, respectively making pots whose shapes and ornaments are inherited from 'our ancestors', such as deep bowls with high brims and the so-called tall 'taiere' with larger brims, can be easily identified. lt should also be mentioned that while the profile of the bowl represents the ancient tradition of the La-Teme pots, the contour of the 'taier' is the direct extension of the oriental profiles whose influence extended in the Horezu center. The traditional production also comprises a high variety of jugs and cups, flowerpots, saltcellars, pitchers and 'ciorbalâce' (very large pots for cooking sour soup or borsch). On the other hand, there are new shapes adopted by the Horezu pottery according to the individual imagination, or to the influences exercised on the local craftsmen. There are functional transformations as well, which consist in the conversion of the utilitarian pottery into a decorative one. By using the 'corn' and the 'gaqa' - very two old utensils for creating the decoration, the Horezu potters have revived the ancient motifs, such as geometrica! motifs (lines, circles, spirals, zigzags, semicircles, waves), symbolic zoomorphic motifs (the rooster - the Horezu pottery emblem, the fish), vegetal motifs (rose buds, small fir trees, clover, grape bunches, life tree). There are other sy{Tlbolic motifs representing the church image, Virgin Mary, Jesus Christ, the sun, and the stars. The pottery objects are coloured in nuances of ochre, Siena green and blue. Consequently, as far as the shape and ornaments are concerned, the Horezu pottery tradition and innovation are two complementary phenomena. Tradition manifests itself at the levei of functionality, techniques, creative processes, symbolic motifs, and morphological-typological structure. lnnovation is nothing more than a development of tradition.”
