Atelier di ceramica
Enveloped in the natural harmony of the rolling Tuscan hills, Christiane Perrochon's inspiration is drawn from all that surrounds her from the pale ochre earth to the ever-changing sky. It is in this setting that she creates her stoneware and porcelain ceramics, thrown at the wheel and shaped by hand, fired at high temperatures and covered with glazes of infinite colors and textures.
Her relentless research in the chemistry of glazes has led her not only to a vast knowledge of the techniques of ceramics and glazes but further to the creation of a range of ceramic glazes of seemingly inexhaustible hues and surfaces.
Glazes of rich tones allied with strong textures leave their subtle yet unmistakable mark on each work of art which is testimony to the Perrochon reputation. Christiane Perrochon's passion for color was first stirred during her studies at the Ecole des Arts Decoratifs in Geneva. After completing her studies she worked in private studios and taught Ceramics at the international school of Geneva Her first studio as an independent artist was established in Hermance, Geneva in 1971. She moved to Tuscany in 1976 where she presently still resides with her husband.
Her continuous research in ceramic glazes is an on-going testimony to this enduring passion. Each glaze yields a different chromatic result depending on the support used. Be it stoneware or porcelain, drastically different results can be obtained using the same glaze. Forms and colors are intimately bound. The colors created by Christiane Perrochon reach the height of their expression in the forms, cleaving to the gracious and voluptuous forms in perfect harmony, the fruit of extended research.
Obsessed with colour and possessed with a sixth sense for discovering and developing hues that have rarely, if ever, been seen in stoneware, Christiane Perrochon has been carrying out her research with high-temperature ceramic glazes for over forty years.
Christiane Perrochon artisan production is entirely done by hand. Every single object, nothing short as a functional piece of art - precious in its unrepeatable uniqueness.
