Ceramicist Arielle de Gasquet lives and works in Paris. There she creates pieces that are influenced by a Japanese aesthetic – with clean lines and a sense of restraint. This teapot with hand-crafted brass handle in an intense midnight blue is contemporary yet timeless. As each piece is handmade, expect slight variations that will add to its charm.
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
