For almost 30 years, the process of wood firing has fulfilled my ceramist artistic life. Born in Provence, I decided to move in a wild and peaceful place surrounded by woods located nearby Limoges, worldwide famous area for its fine porcelain. Numerous residencies in Japan, and Asian potters‘ friends changed the course of my live. For then, I have been practicing Shino, Oribe Yakishime (natural ash on rough clays), the creative touchstone of my potter’s life. My work has two directions: shino and porcelain teaware and stoneware sculptures centered on the theme of Trees, both wood fired during 4 or 5 days in my Anagama kiln (direct flame). I ‘m focussing on painting my works with the help of the fire in my Anagama kiln.
