Arielle de Gasquet's ceramics have a purity of form that is borrowed from the Japanese ceramic tradition. To this she adds a palette of contemporary glazes. This serving bowl is a beautiful object in its own right, but is designed for use. The dark matte grey glaze would sit well on any table.
It was while living in New York a decade ago that Parisian, Arielle de Gasquet fell into ceramics – “you could say that ceramics found me”. Looking to make a vase for her ikebana course she was introduced to a ceramics studio filled with members of the Japanese community – “they kindly said I must have been a ceramicist in another life”.Visit Designer Page
“I wanted everything pure, simple and white and it has slowly evolved from there. Usually I put some clay on the wheel and see what happens and where it wants to go”.
