Isabelle Roux is self-taught. She has been working with clay for over thirty years, in her workshop near Lourdes, at the foot of the Davantaygue mountain. She created her first piece on the day she turned 33. Since then, she has not stopped working with clay with a very personal technique. She creates stoneware containers, modelled, sculpted and engraved, sometimes very large, and has been conducting the research with porcelain since 2005.

Her containers conjure up “open spaces”, vibrating with light. Working from very thin strips of clay, stretched to the breaking point of the material, with a confident gesture, her pieces aim to express the emotions that inhabit her facing the nature and the landscapes around her. As for porcelain, she suggests their minerality. Her pieces are then striped and saturated with engraving lines which fit her work with the ancient tradition of primitive ceramics, while underlining the contemporaneity of the lines and the work on the material. For a decade, Isabelle Roux has been painting on paper, with which she develops a new, very personal pictorial language.
