After teaching in primary education for twenty years and raising four children, I started learning ceramics techniques in 2014 with Maguite Hommais-Gaudin in Beuvillers near Lisieux. As I live in
the country in the Pays d'Auge, I have been able to convert an outbuilding to form a workshop at the family home.
I sell my pots at my workshop but you can see them also at fairs and markets in Normandy.
I work in stoneware, mainly for turning. My pieces, which are fired in an electric kiln, have a utilitarian purpose because I like the idea that my pots will find their place in another home and
be in daily use.
I like to try all kinds of decorative techniques : slip decoration, sgraffito, wax resist, shellac resist and hydro-abrasion, colored terra sigillata...
I still have a long way to go, especially in researching the inexhaustible possibilities of glazes.
