PEACE AND HARMONY

HANDMADE POTTERY

ABOUT

I fell in love with pottery when I saw one of Shoji Hamada's creations. I was struck by the elegance, the simplicity and the emotion  expressed by his work.

The time came when I could set up a studio and start pottery. I feel so much peace while making pots that this is what I want to share. And I don't know how nor why but the name Heiwa, which means peace in Japanese, came to my mind.

When I went to Japan, I had a stamp made of the kanji heiwa by a wonderful old man so fond of french classical music. Wasn't it a sign?

Peace on earth

MY INSPIRATION

I live in Provence, and I take my inspiration from the light and beauty of the countryside around me.

But since I lived in several foreign countries I know that these different cultures have a deep influence on me.

What I especially enjoy is creating for someone, like an architect working with a special person to design the home where she will feel happy. This is the way I would like to work, because YOU are part of my inspiration.
So if you are tempted by this journey, get in touch with me

My goal is to focus on simple aesthetic but also the functional aspect of the pottery I make. Simple lines are essential to me.

I just would like to be a good "artisan" as we say in French. I put a lot of care in each one of the pots I make so that people enjoy using them.

I created this dinner set thinking of the color of the morning sky over the fields at the end of summer. I use it every day at home. Then a lovely lady liked it so much that she ordered a complete dinner set that is now bringing some Provence light in Paris area.

I admire so many Japanese and Korean potters that I can't help being inspired by their work when I sit at my wheel ...

This tea set was designed for a dear friend, very fond of Asian cultures.
