Contemporary ceramiques of France

 

The French have always been intrinsic style innovators in fashion and the arts and have readily adapted to new trends. In the ceramic arts, there has been a consistent tradition of invention, research, and the adoption of new techniques through the ages.  Bernard Palissy, Theodore Deck, Edmond Lachenal, Roger Capron, Clement Massier, Jean Mayodon and Andre Metthey are just a few of the French ceramicists that contributed to the development of contemporary French pottery with their exploration of different clays and glazing techniques.
The local markets have eagerly embraced and supported the contemporary ceramic purveyors and some of the current crop of contemporary ceramicists are featured in this post. Also being displayed  is a tasteful video by Luke Riolon on the Ceramique Cafe at the  les journees de la ceramique  ( ‘Days of the ceramic ‘) in Paris. This is an annual ceramics street market held in Paris over 4 days. At the Ceramique Cafe, visitors have the opportunity to choose from a diverse array of cups, provided by the many exhibitors, to use and admire while they drink their coffee.

‘ My work has focused in recent years on an old and almost forgotten technique which goes back (2500 years): the terra sigillata. The manufacture of a slip, with the finest particles of clay, provides satin surfaces that are shiny, soft and waterproof. The many possibilities of firing, and the infinite variety clays, gives a rich colour and tone, thanks to the presence of iron oxide in the clay used. ‘

Présentation | Christine Ladevèze

Les montagnes, les falaises, les volcans, la mer, les torrents, la neige, la glace, et le feu, la nature est ma source ; la traduire par le grès et par les émaux, est mon propos. Les œuvres créées par la nature, formes sculptées par les vents ou les flots puissants contiennent une majesté et une force qui m’impressionnent.

Ananda Aragundi Hanus began her career as an agricultural engineer in Ecuador. On visiting France she decided to devote her time to ceramics and in 2003 she graduated at the French Institute of Ceramics in Sevres. The shape of Ananda’s ceramic sculptures are the result of a subtle marriage between asymmetry and imbalance and their appearance resembles  textures of the natural world as if the wind had blown them or they had been shaped by water, snow or volcanoes.

    There’s obviously a broad range of traditions converging in France. Apparent when comparing to your post on contemporary Japanese women ceramicists for example (which although totally divergent styles all seemed to share a particular sense of aesthetic resolution). I love the piece by Céline Huteau! I wonder if you have come across the work of Helene Dizier? (It would be great if there was a search function on your site, there’s just so much info here!)
