Cup from Catherine De Abreu | ÉolienneQuebec Ceramist Collection
As a challenge, the Quebec artist wanted to use vivid orange for this collection, a colour with a bold character which is rarely used in ceramics. Juxtaposed with this modern graphic, a rebellious cup is born with a singular design that captures the imagination.
Laval ceramist Catherine De Abreu advocates a contemporary approach to the objects she creates.
The craftsmanship behind these cups is what makes them unique as the colour gradient, intensity and patterns varies from one object to the other. Think of it as the yardstick of what handmade looks like.

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."
The passing of time, longing, travel and a feeling of airiness: these are the thoughts that the artist wishes to evoke with this gentle collection, which is resolutely conducive to reverie.
