Path and Inspiration
I am Flora and have lived several lives already: an earlier one as a civil engineer and a painter, an ongoing one as a mother and sourdough baker, and a ceramist one since 2021. My main source of inspiration comes from nature, the one I grew up in, in South-West of France, where the mountains meet the waters. I value simplicity and over the years, I’ve developed a strong connection to the Japanese concept of wabi-sabi which taught me to welcome acceptance, transience and imperfection in my work
Process and Practice
I work with care and patience, by hand, from my studio based in Greenwich, London. I primarily use stoneware with occasional inclusions of earthenware or porcelain. My ceramics world is populated with simple shapes, organic patterns and natural colours. Whether thrown or handbuilt, I aim to create soulful tableware with a Japanese twist.
