Jérôme Hirson


My attachment to popular art is expressed in the creation of ceramic tableware: plates, bowls, jugs, dishes. Simplicity and purity are also evident in my unique creations: monoliths, jars, etc.

Trained by Dauphine Scalbert, I chose modelling (coiling and pinching), a technique that enables me to sense the energy of the clay without controlling it: I stay away from the wheel because it feels as if the tool comes between me and the clay. My spontaneity and technique produce irregularities and imbalances. Pleasure comes with the solitude of the creative process; aestheticism is fed by the simplicity of the lines and imperfect surfaces…

I need to become one with the clay in order to set the object free and thus release my emotion.
