Imagine a place in the hills in Tuscany. Totally silent and cut off from the world´s hectic life. This is where Swiss Christiane Perrochon makes her beautiful hand-thrown and hand-glazed stoneware vases. In delicate colors like sunflower yellow, light green, sky blue, rose and aubergine, inspired by the nature that surrounds her. Each glaze is made from scratch by hand with real metals and oxides which gives a poetic and lively look.
Christiane Perrochon has an ongoing fascination for glazing - as she says:
“The art of glazes is an art of endless possibilities. There is always a moment of surprise when the pieces are removed from the kiln, revealing, for the first time in all their splendor, the variations in color. Each firing brings the glaze to life.”
Dancing objects: Christiane Perrochon is also known for her simple and organic shapes - all thrown on the potter´s wheel: “When working at the wheel one has the impression that the object begins to dance.”
None of the vases are exactly the same, thanks to the glazes that gives each piece a unique look - this makes it one of a kind.
