Quebec ceramist Stéphanie Blanchet offers us a brand-new look at her work with these fine, minimalist cups.
In contrast to her bright, glossy glazes, these pastel cups with an eggshell finish highlight a more refined facet of the artist.
The precise shaping that allows these cups to be stacked is a great feature too.
The handcrafted aspect of these cups makes each one unique. Thus colour gradations and capacity will vary from one to another. The inherent beauty of handmade work.

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.
