Marie-Joel says the first time she touched clay was at age 15. After finishing her bachelor’s degree in fine arts, she realized that her passion for this medium was still strong.
Now living in the beautiful Eastern Townships of Quebec, Marie-Joël and her husband Jordan, create decorative pieces and dishware inspired by the East coast. She is the specialist in throwing and tournassage – the part of her work she says she prefers – while he takes care of sanding and enameling. In their studio, all clay residues are collected in tanks, and kneaded again in order to be reused for other creations.
The simple lines and rugged construction of this pottery beg for it to be used on your table every day. These pieces are dishwasher safe, though we suggest that, as with anything you treasure, hand washing might prolong it’s lifespan!
