It is said that a pot without a soul is just clay around a hole…
Hi there, coming from a family of artists/makers I found out clay was my media. I loved making things I could use for years in my life. After taking my first class in wheel throwing, I was hooked! That was way back in 1990.
The process of making functional art became my purpose. I have always been fascinated by handmade functional objects that carry a special feeling to them which makes the whole experience of using these objects very unique and special. It’s a vehicle to make connection with people. My very first customers were my closest friends and relatives. These connections helped me converge my style into what my work is all about.
Today, my work is being used all over the world to either hold a warm beverage or sprinkle salt over a delicious meal, to lit up a cozy room with one of my oil lamps… or to hold the ashes of a beloved pet… I make art functional.
Therefore I decided I set out to create a very unique selection of functional decorative ceramics for collectors who understand the value of owning or giving a one-of-a-kind work of art that can be used either for display or in everyday living.
It hasn’t been easy though. Making a living as a full time potter has its challenges. In the past I could hardly meet ends on a shoestring budget. But I kept holding tight to my passion and refused to give up. In those moments of hardship I’ve found real support from family and close friends who always believed in me and my work.
So far, my business has been successfully growing in part thanks to the great response to one of my very, very best sellers ever! My round Salt shakers, specially The black and white salt and pepper sets. I started making them in 2002 when one of my dear friends brought back one of those curious shakers as a souvenir made by a local potter in France. I challenged myself to make one of those in my own style. That was a hit! Ever since I’ve never stopped making and selling them..
