Nathalie Sonnet, ceramist
After studying history, I joined the Louvre Museum at the end of the 80’s, then in full mutation. My gaze is particularly focused on ceramics, perhaps because here one perceives the hand shaping matter. I then resume studies of art history and, from eye to hand, other apprenticeships, which gradually and durably attach me to this material, clay. In 2005 I set up a workshop in Normandy, where color and light nourish my work.
Since then, following a path of research in forms, colors, textures, the body is increasingly involved in gesture and develops proximity and intimacy with matter.
