Sorry, I don't organise course or internship.
As a child, I had the experience of the earth in my parents' garden. Somewhere in Alsace, I scratched the earth, I made furrows in it in which I sowed seeds, then I watered it under the wise advice of my father, amazed to be able to harvest later the fruit of our labor. Already there, I found the pleasure of seeing plants grow and measuring the generosity of the earth which gives back to the gardener what it has given him.
This experience was reproduced in an identical way afterwards with the work of the earth in the workshop. I accompanied my daughter Elsa, a teenager, to a pottery class. Very quickly I took great pleasure in it. First, it is the discovery of the material. What can I do with it? How to use it ? Where will he take me?
I owe my knowledge and my skills to all those who transmitted theirs to me in workshops, I am infinitely grateful to them for these moments of sharing, discovery and joy.
A BIG THANK YOU TO...
Nadia and Alain Panziera, Cécilia Olabarieta, Bernadette Le Scouezec who taught me basic shaping techniques, techniques for applying and manufacturing engobes, oxides and enamels. Denis Grazon from the workshop l'Age de Faire who taught me how to make and apply juice and HT° enamels on stoneware. Thanks to Patrice Couget, and to Yves Bardout, who patiently and tenaciously pushed and encouraged me along this path, I became a ceramist because of you.
Many, many thanks to Elsa Bardout who developed this site. She helps me with ardor and enthusiasm.
I appreciate at their fair value the art shots of Jean-Pierre Montagne and the Arthur Caudron video who appear there.
Thank you all for your valuable contributions.
