From her beginnings at the illustrious Ecole des Beaux-Arts to her time teaching at the International School of Geneva, Christiane Perrochon has carefully honed her craft to be a marriage of scientific insight and creative prowess.
The fruit of many years of personal research into global ceramics techniques, her work is duly informed by her lifelong love of learning and her natural intuition for material and color.
Christiane’s specialty are the beautiful hues that glow from within each piece. Her drastic chromatic results vary based on subtle tweaks to her process – a red shine under a sweep of midnight black is surely the result of many late nights testing the combination in her kiln.
Her forms, though simple, are perfected and smooth. Each is dipped in a high-gloss, high-fire glaze that deepens and enriches the final color. By working in stoneware, Christiane Perrochon is able to create deliberate final forms that are simultaneously sturdy and sculptural for the modern table and home.
