Mural element, collection “Les habitants” unique piece, brownstone, metal birds.

I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN ATTRACTED BY CLAY. AS A YOUNG GIRL, I LOVED MAKING POTTERY AND WAS FASCINATED BY THE POTS THAT WERE DISPLAYED IN MY GRANDMOTHER’S KITCHEN. LATER, I DISCOVERED THE TRADITIONAL CERAMICS OF THE CITY OF SEJNANE IN TUNISIA AND WAS AMAZED BY THE HUGE VARIETY OF THAT ART EXHIBITED IN THE MUSEUMS. THE PURITY OF JAPANESE CERAMICS, THE SHAPES OF OBJECTS FROM ANCIENT GREECE, THE METALLIC REFLECTIONS AND THE TURQUOISE BLUE OF PERSAN PATTERNS, THE COLORS OF PRE-COLOMBIAN CERAMIC ART FILL ME WITH WONDER AND GUIDE MY WORK. MY IMAGINATION IS ALSO FED WITH WORKS OF CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS SUCH AS SERGE POLIAKOFF, EDUARDO CHILLIDA, JOAN MIRÓ, ANTONI TAPIÈS, LUCIE RIE, JACQUELINE LERAT AND MANY OTHERS …

Vase, collection “Les habitants”, unique piece, white glazed sandstone, metal birds.
