My ceramics are at the crossroads of all my inspirations.
From the Ritual of Tea in Japan and its ceramics of incredible simplicity and elegance which gives a new taste on a daily basis, through Art Nouveau, which instil a green madness and a great freedom in movement.
From Brittany legends, great celtic saga, english folklore and the forest of Broceliande, where I live and which is weaving a daily inspiration.
I work with porcelain and white stoneware, as well as with textured black and colored stonewares, playing with smooth and textured surfaces, looking for profundity.
I also use local clays, that I prepare myself and wich come enhancing my slip's palette.
All my designs are made freehanding, using slip, and make each piece unique, by its designs as by the attentions towards it.
