Chantal Césure




The eternal countryside in the foothills of the Cévennes, nature quivering on Chantal’s earthenware, ever present. “I work at my ceramic creations as one would put together a clothes collection.” Indeed, for a long time she made fabric and cloth, a world away from ceramics but one that she still cherishes and which does not cease to inspire her. The passion of flowers, of plants, the life that gave birth to the roses, iris and ipomoea, eglantines and peonies on the soft, satin-like enamel of her first creations.
Today, beautiful pieces in stoneware adorned with batik or the triumphant indigo of “tie-dye”, revealing her fascination with Africa. “I am exploring blue slowly, wanting to play with its different facets and cultures in my own way”. Poetry surrounds this artist as she signs her pieces, “Louis Louise émoi”.
