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 | SiliceQuebec Ceramist Collection
This latest creation by ceramist Julie Lavoie is a delicate bare clay cup, rich in the wood firing from which it is made.
Notice the subtle grain that the clay retains in its natural state. Nevertheless, thanks to the high temperature firing, the piece is non-porous.
A plant imprint adds a touch of magic to this successful fusion between the delicacy of the piece and the strength of the flame.
The handmade aspect of these cups makes them all unique. This is why the shape and capacity may vary from one to another. Think of it as a guarantee of handmade work!
