Stéphanie Raymond




She lives in the wind, in dry summers, fog and rain; in the sudden gusts of wind that wander the rugged Provençal countryside, inhabited by her emotions and desires that are projected onto her cups, vases, and bowls. Nearly always portraits of women: pensive, seemingly naïf, dancing and serious, modest or inviting, in love. Women, often mothers, with no loss of their undeniable femininity. No doubt always the same story, always the same women, renewed . . . Icons it appears, for the gold of old and nostalgia of colours. Bonnard in the omnipresence of the drawing; Klimt in the emanating sensuality: Stephanie’s unique porcelain.
