Cup from Julie Lavoie | Neige

Using a wood-fired kiln, Julie Lavoie, ceramist, creates exquisite porcelain, both rich and rustic with its flames and the delicate imprint of cinders. The result: a rich "living white" effect, both precious and pure in its own way.

Cup from Julie Lavoie | Tenmoku

It was in a teahouse in Japan that the potter Julie Lavoie discovered Tenmoku. On seeing the works of Kamada Koji for the first time, she was inspired by the 'starry skies' effect, unique to this glaze. Like a premonition, this idea of meteors had already appeared in her work before this journey.

Cup from Arik de Vienne | Mataf

An original cup by Quebec ceramist Arik de Vienne that offers a variety of texture through his technique and unusual "glaze" effect.

Cup from Makiko | Vanille

The distinct finish on these elegant pieces is created using a clay powder in the glaze.

Cup from Makiko | Abysse

Quebec ceramist Makiko Nakamura Hicher works her cups to give them this irregular and ageing effect.

Cup from Arik de Vienne | Bulle

A mini stoneware cylinder in the ideal size for a welcome or tasting cup. The neon blue lip gives it a stylish touch of modernity, the signature of Arik of Vienne, its creator.

Cup from Catherine De Abreu | Méduse

As she prepares her ceramic's third firing, the artist lays out laser decals that will add her object's undeniable signature: the jellyfish. Why this creature? "There is no specific reason ... I find this marine specimen fascinating, it's seducing simply by its beauty."
