The ceramist


I create stoneware decorative vases and other one-of-a-kind pieces. The texture on the surface of the clay is an essential element guiding me in the creation of my pieces. As a biologist, nature and particularly animal wildlife are important sources of inspiration. When decorated with figures, motifs are simple, spare and even primitive to confer more presence to the subject. The texture on the surface of the clay and the contrast between raw clay and glazes contribute to give a rustic, organic and warm aspect to my pieces. I also explore themes related to cracks, breaks, fractures … openings by which the eye penetrates.

In 2011, after a scientific career, I return to the Eastern Townships where I open my studio, La Chouette Poterie, in Magog. Since then, I regularly participate to the Circuit des arts Memphrémagog and the Salon des métiers d’art de l’Estrie.



In 2014, one of my ceramic pieces was acquired in the permanent collection of the Musée des beaux-arts de Sherbrooke.




In 2015, one of my pieces was selected by the designer Jean-Claude Poitras for the Festival Mode et Design de Montréal.

I am member professional artisan of the Conseil des métiers d’art du Québec and member of the Corporation des métiers d’art en Estrie.

With the creation of my ceramics, I wish to share the sensual pleasure brought by working with clay as well as my passion for nature and ceramic.
