The pottery studio is my happy place! Having my hands in the clay and shaping it into timeless treasures is what brings me joy! I am from France and my first steps in ceramic work started in Cork, Ireland where I lived for 14 years before I finally found Boulder and decided to take my work to new horizons. My work is timeless and inspired by nature and simplicity. My color palette is very neutral. I like to play with simple forms and to hand carve some of my work. I am mainly a hand builder as I love how small imperfections create the perfect piece. Ceramic work requires a lot of patience. So many stages can go wrong, from creating, trimming, carving, sanding, drying, bisque firing, decorating, glazing, glaze firing... and then I leave it to the kiln gods to make magic happen!
