Born in France and settled in Montreal since 1985, Marie-Christine under took, at that moment, her training at the ‘Centre de céramique Bonsecours’ graduating in 1988.
Sculpture fascinates her and is an integral part of her ceramic approach. She specifically enjoys using the coil building technique when modelling women’s torsos. Another facet of her ceramic skill is the creation of decorative and functional craft-ware. These small series are made on the potter’s wheel and are cooked using a Japanese ‘raku’ burning technique. Based on specific firing processes and quick cooling, unpredictable results, intense colors and a certain amount of crackle are produced by this method which give the pots a remarkable ancient touch.
Marie-Christine participates each summer since 1989 in Quebec’s foremost ceramic event, the ’1001 pots’ fair in Val-David.
