Cheminement

Mon cheminement

Après avoir fait bien d'autres choses dans ma vie (comme travailler dans une station de ski, fait de la rénovation d'intérieur, enseigné le français langue étrangère au Japon, enseigné le japonais en France, avoir été interprète et traductrice de japonais), le raku m'a interpellé un jour, et depuis mes mains façonnent tout ce qui me passe par la tête. Ce sont surtout des objets pratiques et décoratifs qui sortent de mon four, car je pense qu'il est important de s'entourer de belles choses pour vivre au quotidien. Depuis quelque temps, je créé des pièces qui permettent d'accueillir des plantes. Je plante et sème beaucoup, et je trouve que le raku et le végétal forment un duo magnifique en décoration !
J'aime la couleur, et l'aspect brut du raku, qui rappelle souvent des motifs que l'on voit dans la nature, sur les pierres, dans les écorces, les entrelacs de broussailles.
En arrière plan de mon aventure avec le raku, se tient très certainement mon aventure avec le Japon, où j'ai vécu quelques années et dont je parle et écris la langue. Les bols pour la cérémonie du thé m'enchantent, les mini assiettes et maints petits ramequins pour servir la cuisine japonaise sont autant d'éléments qui m'ont amenée vers la céramique. J'aime quand mes créations plaisent, qu'elles servent, et embellissent les maisons et les jardins !

English version of my story

After different other activities in my life (like working in a ski resort, redecorating homes, teaching French as a second language in Japan, teaching Japanese in France, interpreting and translating Japanese), raku ceramic one day, knocked at my door, at my harms and hands, and I've been creating all what crosses my mind ever since. What comes out of my kiln, are mainly decorative and useful objects, because I think it is important to surround oneself with beautiful things for everyday life. It enhances our energy and pleasure. Recently, I tend to make items related to plants, because I plant and sow a lot, and I like very much the combination of raku ceramic and vegetation. I find this highly decorative.
I love the kind of rustic aspect of raku ceramic ; the textures and colours that often remind us of what we see in natural world, like stones, trees, pieces of wood, bushes.
Behind my story with raku ceramic, very certainly stands my story with Japan, where I lived a few years and of which I speak and write the language. I am enchanted with tea ceremony bowls, the chawans ; and all the many tiny dishes, plates and small bowls used in the family kitchens in Japan, are probably what lead me towards ceramics. I love when what I create pleases the people ; when it makes houses and gardens beautiful and places one wants to spend time into !

    After different other jobs all linked to Japanese culture and language, my hands diped into clay and so far have never stopped. My eyes, when shut, see amazing natural crackles in colorful glazes...
