The water is flooding and drowning, the fire is burning and incinerating. And yet these two elements have always been the potter’s companions.

Thus, the examination of which of the potter’s clay subjects his clay every day reminds us of the ambivalence between fire and water.

But who will be touched most by this double power in the end? The clay dust or the potter who leaves the work of his hands to the elements?
— Daniel de Montmollin, Par l’eau et le feu, un itinéraire de potier
