  • Catherine, faïencière

    Catherine works ceramics since nearly 30 years and remains always passionate. As she says : "I can not get enough !". After having worked sandstone, she turned to earthenware, a clay that she finds much more «friendly » and that allows her to test "all what she wants without surprises at the opening of the oven!".

    At the present time, the tableware drives her attention. She favours objects that she likes to use in daily life : cups, bowls, salad bowls, platters, all what makes that "the table becomes cheerful and source of pleasure !".
