Bérangère Céramiques - Large house
The theme of the house is important in my work, and these are my signature. Built using slab of back stoneware clay, they covered with white and red slip. They are aged by scraping the edges, and then single-fired.
Dimensions - 23cm H 11cm W 10cm D approx.
Guided by the pleasure of creating beautiful objects for everyday usage, I design and make functional and unique porcelain pieces as well as a line of decorative objects on the theme of houses. Some of the ceramic houses are photographed and the photos used to create image transfers that are applied on some porcelain pieces. Other pieces are decorated with a subtle row of houses in relief. Some are left with no decoration, leaving the porcelain stand out.
The work around the theme of houses is mostly made with black stoneware clay, and reflects both the sense of connection we feel for our home and land, but of curiosity for unknown places and countries. A house is a place that is dear to all and each individual will transform and adapt the space to claim ownership, to make it ‘hygge’, as described so accurately by the Scandinavians. The home is a reflection of oneself.
