The ‘Poems-Objects’

Each piece of the ‘Poems-Objects’ series tells a story and speaks with poetic.

My approach was to make porcelain pieces without recreating new moulds , so using and transforming referenced models. Through this use of archives, I mobilise the historical heritage , know-how and tradition of the ‘Pierre Arcquié’ porcelain factory,in Limoges.

I recycled and combined anachronistically their porcelain mould library, and play with the know-how of this factory , its past and its history. I tried to update the traditional aesthetic and revival this porcelain factory.

I wanted to create a new object type at the intersection of craft and design : the poems – objects. They combine lyricism and minimalism, abstract and figurative , emotions and timelessness. I attach importance to the whiteness of the pieces, because it offers consistency, structure and timeless to the object.
