My first studio was created back in 2009 in Woking, UK right after my training at the University of Creative Arts in Farnham. I am now based in a quaint village, Samois, France since 2012. I am now fortunate to have my own space, filled with good vibes and inspiration.
My favorite tool is the potter's wheel and I throw all my porcelain ware, and I work with slabs for the creation of most of the houses. The firing is done in an electric kiln and I do mono-firing when possible.
Guided by the pleasure of creating beautiful objects for everyday usage, I design and make functional and unique porcelain pieces as well as a line of decorative objects on the theme of houses. Some of the ceramic houses are photographed and the photos used to create image transfers that are applied on some porcelain pieces. Other pieces are decorated with a subtil row of house in relief. Some are left with no decoration, leaving the porcelain stand out.
The work around the theme of houses is mostly made with black stoneware clay, and reflects both the sense of connection we feel for our home and land, but of curiosity for unknown places and countries. A house is a place that is dear to all and each individual will transform and adapt the space to claim ownership, to make it ‘hygge’, as described so accurately by the Scandinavians. The home is a reflection of oneself.
