Loïc Thérien

“If I take a look behind my almost 40 years as a potter, a clear trend is emerging: that of letting the earth and the heat speak and favoring their natural expression, first by working the forms to purify and adapt them to the type of glaze to come, then giving the maximum space for cooking and the chance that it generates. Thus, after having explored salt glazes, I am now happy or sorry for the random and capricious formation of crystals.”

“My work is strongly inspired by Asian art, especially Japanese. The work of the textures and the fire effects of cooking with wood and gas, fascinate me and characterize my utilitarian pieces.”

Chantal Auger

“Sometimes I interpret, sometimes I compose and always I learn, I learn. I work sandstone and porcelain. I mainly make utility pottery in connection with the preparation, cooking and serving of food. I take special care to produce quality objects that can be appreciated in their daily use.”

“My enamels are made of clay picked respectfully at the belly of our mother earth. I decline it pure in a deep brown, lengthened with salts to find a rustic flavor or mixed with wood ashes for the depth of the sunny ocher. High temperature fire reveals all of its immense alchemical power.”

“Clay plasticity is a great playground that fuels my creative breath. I want to give life to this material that thinks itself in three dimensions, embodying it in objects of sharing and everyday poetry. I am both an artist who explores the sensitivity of the earth and a craftswoman who works to produce objects of comfort and refinement. My production is made of porcelain. I favor this clay for its qualities of brightness and finesse of work. The harmony of shapes, light and textures is at the heart of my work.”

“Inspired by the industrial revolution of the nineteenth century I draw each of my pieces with pear and brush. I cook my high-temperature gas oven parts to give an old newspaper effect to my drawings. This high cooking temperature allows my parts to achieve total vitrification and keep the bare earth on a larger surface. I use in some cases the electric oven and so, my drawings appear with greater contrast in a pure black and white. In this case, I use a transparent glaze.”

Fabienne Synnott

Sandstone or porcelain. Shot, fashioned, carved. Single pieces or small series. Reduced cooking … sometimes with wood but most of the time with gas. I treat each piece as a composition in its own right, necessarily derived from the earth and which also keeps track of it. Nature inspires me; plant, animal, human. I like to play, to experiment, to discover, to understand, to share. I am listening to what processes and materials have to say.

“My meticulous main collection is inspired by several traditional Ukrainian symbols that are part of my origins. These sets, although mainly used in Ukrainian traditional embroidery and costumes, all have a very special meaning. So I take these scenery to transcribe them in my work. I find a tradition that bubbles in my veins, in my mind and nourishes my imagination. My approach is a long fantastic journey between my roots and origins as well as my personal universe where I feel and exploit different ideas, paths and convictions.”

“It is too easy to fall into a serious daily life, where the duties of life make us forget the imagination and the infinite universe of cerebral vagrancy. So I come to create a world more childish, traditional, calm and positive, to give full place to the daydream in each of us.”

“My creations are inspired mainly by my urban environment but also by nature. I shape and turn utilitarian objects with two clays: porcelain and semi-gray sandstone that I color with engobe. So much diversity to create contrasts between plant colors and concrete gray. In their everyday use, I hope my ceramics will tinge your lives with simple pleasures while allowing you to enjoy the moment.”

    Very interesting ! Thank you !

    Yes, the choice was large, many local ceramic artists exhibit at this event, and there were a wide selection of great pieces to consider.
