Le Grand Bleu
The collection “Le Grand Bleu” (The Big Blue) is a set of monochrome pieces including vases, planters and bowls. The collection, a nod to the namesake film, stems from Laura’s fascination for this colour. The glaze that covers the pieces in this collection is the result of extensive research, a real pursuit of colour which led to this opaque, deep and radiant blue. Each piece is hand-turned in stoneware, decorated with small handles and then glazed. Handles adorn all the pieces in this collection, an ornament which imparts character and uniqueness to each model.
Each model is produced in small batches and each piece is made individually. As a result, there can be slight variations in the shape, dimensions and density of the glaze, which makes each piece unique.
A young ceramicist with degrees in graphic design and handmade ceramics, Laura has been developing objects that are half utilitarian and half works of art in her workshop in Perreux, in the French Loire region.
Each collection is the result of research and consideration of the object and its function. Laura establishes a visual language in each range, a system that enables her to create minimalistic objects. In her designs, she transforms handles into graphic, ornamental and functional elements.
She crafts her own glazes. Her colour palette includes mainly blue, black, grey and white, hues she uses as monochromes.
From small batches to one-offs, each piece is hand-turned in stoneware and fired at high temperature (1280°).
Laura feeds her inspiration with regular visits to archaeological museums and the study of books on traditional ceramics. She enjoys appropriating the ancestral and traditional forms of pottery in order to offer a contemporary and geometric vision, marked by the aesthetics of the Bauhaus school.
