Les Journées de la Céramique – Paris



Les Journées de la Céramique  – ‘the ceramics days’ – 20th anniversary


In 1995, a group of ceramicists and experts founded the Paris-Potier Association with the intention of creating an important ceramic event in Paris in an easily accessible place, to become a showcase for ceramics. The aim was to manifest a friendly outdoor program to present ceramic sculpture in the same light as day-to-day utility objects. The Paris-Potier team has continued as an association consisting of a dozen professional ceramists, who every year invite ceramic exhibitors to present a coherent, lively and renewed pottery gathering for the Parisian public.

Some of the ceramic artists participating in the show.



Ceramic sculpture – Brigitte Long

‘I like to give substance to matter-earth; It is my favorite support. I lead her, she carries me away; It is a game or a melee with matter, with fire. Model, transform, assemble, deform, paint, engrave, inhabit a space, open it and make it vibrate. Inspired by nature, the mineral and conscious of this reality so fragile and complex, I seek simplicity and the essential in the forms and the materials.’

‘ I am inspired by the world around me…the colours, shapes and the textures of the landscape.’
‘ I want each pot to convey its own spirit and character…to have a pulse and a heartbeat. I want the marks to reflect the journey of exploration and learning in each pot, just as a wrinkle or dimple depicts expression and character in a human face.’

Philippe Buraud  —  Terra sigillata bleue carte


Terra sigillata: the technique
Clays found in the nature are thoroughly mixed in a large quantity of rain water. Addition of sodium silicate favors the dispersion and decantation of heavy clay particles. After a long time of decantation (up to a month), only the upper very liquid part, which contains the finest clay particles, is kept. This liquid is used in successive thin layers to cover the dry raw clay body and polished in between each layer:  a technique very similar to Japanese lacquer. The remarkable shine of the finished piece is due to the alignment of the fine clay particles which reflect the light. The piece is then bisqued and smoked fired with wood. Depending on the nature of both the clay body and the terra sigillata, tensions may appear and will be revealed by the smoke firing process. Warm and transparent colors range from white to black through all the color palette of natural ochre.
