After graduating from the Geneva school of Fine Arts in 1976 at the age of 21, Mireille Moser opened her own workshop a year later in the same town, where she comes from. She spent ten years working there before she settled in France in 1987. She has been tirelessly living and experimenting for over 20 years in Rochebaudin, in the Drôme department.

Mireille Moser combines stoneware and porcelain: she uses the first one for its strength, its structure, which allows her to come up with volumes she wishes to be large and “stocky”. From porcelain, she captures the extreme plasticity, the flexibility, and also the whiteness, which she will then colour with oxides. She first models the stoneware slabs by hand, while they are as thin as a sheet of paper. That is when she composes her piece, like a painter with colours. Here and there, she sometimes enhances the volume by scratching the material. After a first firing, the piece is enamelled, and then fired in a gas oven. The fire then crystallises these two very dissimilar types of clay and results in pieces with unique textures, sometimes very colourful, sometimes matt black, with structured shapes and geometric patterns.
