Isabelle Gauvain, ceramicist, explores the materiel through a range of jewels and decorative objects, in an ethnic spirit, mixing tradition and modernity.
His training as an architect remains the reflection on volume, balance, the right proportion of forms as ornaments, the functional aspect of the object.
For the sake of modernity, these forms are extremely clean. Thus, flowers and birds are treated in an almost abstract way.
The jewels, light and sober, at times recall certain tribal adornments with a resolutely contemporary and timeless spirit.
Only the imprints left in the clay nuance the glaze of a discreet decoration, applied in a spontaneous and irreversible gesture, which gives the piece its unique and artisanal character.
