Ceramicist Arielle de Gasquet lives in Paris but her work has been strongly influenced by the Japanese ceramic tradition. Her pieces have a timeless feel, but she brings to them a modern sensibility. These cups have an intense matte black glaze that would sit as well in a classic or contemporary kitchen. Being handmade, each one is unique.
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”.
