Xavier Duroselle




“First comes the enamel, that is my source”, says Xavier. The enamel and the rest, need we say more: one look at Xavier’s craftsmanship and we know that we are in the presence of an established ceramist, a true artist-artisan of rigorous honesty. Of charming disposition and adamantly consistent, Xavier is marked by a perpetual self-questioning and permanent doubt, the telltale stigma of all the great ones.
His work today, perfectly executed shapes that stand up with an undeniable harmony and strength, but which then lengthen and are reduced, defining grace in an irresistible ascending movement. Assertive celadon, a deep rare red. Strong and accomplished pieces, landmarks to the tides of ceramic’s journey.
