Welcome

Welcome to my Inner World. I am a French self-taught artist, and these past seventeen years I have made Norway my home.

Lanterns

Working hard for my private little Yule market. I’m very much into ceramic lanterns at the moment. I get to use texture rolls I had made some while ago but never got to use until now. I love carving in negative, and then press into a slab of clay and… surprise!:

Progressively

Getting a bit closer to what I want to make but not quite. Glazes are so frustrating. This time, I applied nearly everything with a sponge instead of a paintbrush.

Beads, Tiles and Dishes

I’m a bit disappointed with the underglazes. I think I like them only when they’re not covered with a transparent glaze. But I love my Opalescent glazes, madly. I’m just eager to create more pieces until I can use glazes and underglazes in the combination that feels right to me.

Some beads about which I’m very pleased:

Tree Lantern

As you can see, Lucy supervises everything That’s the only way I’m allowed to work.

I’m quite excited about a new lantern I’m working on. There’ll be glass beads hanging and stars hovering (attached to the tree with wires). And birds of course!
