I am a French self-taught artist, and these past twenty years I have made Norway my home. Moving to the Lofoten islands was the greatest present I ever made to myself and the Arctic landscapes are indeed a true treat for any artist’s eyes. I live with my British soulmate, my sweet Papillon girls, Lucy and Pixie and the spirit of my border collie, Loki. My creativity is a tribute to the eyes that blink in the heart of every smallest thing, the flowing dreams whose pulse tries to reach to us in our most meditative state.
I fired at last a few little things before leaving for France in a couple of days. Gosh, I miss working with ceramic, but my time is devoted to a new painting at the moment and each painting takes a huge amount of my time. But that’s allright, because painting is after all my favourite medium. I wish days were longer, to accommodate all my passions. I’ve also been very busy with studying for my driving license – the theory part . I disliked so much the subject and the way the questions in the tests format you to a certain way of thinking I was convinced I had very little chance of succeeding because of who I am. Well, well… I might have overdone it a bit because not only I succeeded but I also made 0 mistakes which was unheard of – until me – in this commune. It truly sounded like an elaborate gag. I’m afraid I’m now totally formatted. BUT I passed!
I can’t say I like much the bowls I make, it’s just not the same without a potter’s wheel. Here is a bowl for Lucy (although she still prefers eating from our hands):
Potter’s Choice Arctic Blue over Dark Green
And another little one for … whatever:
Potter’s Choice Oatmeal over Smokey Merlot.
And a mysterious atmosphere:
And a few photos of my hand-dyed silk, just because it’s so beautiful:
