The passion for ceramics has always been present for Andrée Dumas, ceramist. After a career in engineering and management, she abandoned business meetings to reorient herself in this manual and creative profession that has always inhabited her and perfected her apprenticeship at the Bonsecours ceramics school.
A great lover of good (and long!) meals with friends and family, Andrée enjoys cooking, entertaining and sharing around a colorful table. Naturally specializing in tableware, she is the creator of a unique, minimalist and refined pottery that leaves plenty of room for color, with a nod to the 1960s.
Ève Marie Laliberté
Based in Montreal, I am a graphic designer by training and a ceramist by passion.
I shape, turn and reproduce by molding pieces with fun and chubby shapes.
Functional, with a touch of the superfluous, cheerful colors and curves that make you want
to pick them up and pet them. Quality fun objects, to improve daily life in a sustainable way.
Ludique Ceramics... Create something useful to share the pleasure, from my hands to your heart!
Through my work with clay, I try to bring out both the softness and the strength of nature, of my environment. My creative journey is guided by the desire to bring matter to life, to arouse an emotion, to share my sensitivity. It is through engravings and modeling that are juxtaposed with simple forms or materials such as wood that my creations are constructed to form utilitarian or sculptural pieces.
My utilitarian collection is meant to be incorporated into everyday life. I like to explore the art of the table by creating functional pieces, with decorations inspired by the fauna and flora of Quebec.
I remain convinced that tea is better when the bowl is made with passion!
Roxane Charest's Ceramic Workshop project was born out of the desire to capitalize on the beauty of everyday life and the ambition to slow down to appreciate it. I want to help restore value to the things around us and create pieces loaded with a story, a will. That everything around us brings respect, gentleness, dignity.
Marie France Labrosse
Clay is a fascinating material to discover, as much to work on its plasticity and flexibility as to contemplate, once cooked, its rigidity and firmness. This is a bit what I try to reproduce in my work by juxtaposing skill and simplicity, color and subtlety, stability and movement. I like to make elegant and refined the resistant and solid object that we use daily.
My creations are mainly inspired by my urban environment but also by nature. I shape and turn utilitarian objects with two clays: porcelain, and gray semi-stoneware that I color with engobe. So much diversity to create contrasts between vegetable colors and concrete grays. During their daily use, I hope that my ceramics will tint your lives with simple pleasures while allowing you to enjoy the present moment.
