Ceramicist Arielle de Gasquet lives and works in Paris. There she creates pieces that are strongly influenced by a Japanese aesthetic – with clean lines and a sense of restraint. The teapot has an elegant hand-crafted brass handle, and the intense midnight blue glaze of the set would suit a contemporary or a classic kitchen.
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”.
