Dominique Pouchain

Dominique Pouchain
Ceramique Artist, France
Le Promisse le Feu
I bought this wonderful ceramic platter in south of France last summer and while researching the artist, whose name was familiar, but not one I had bought before i found this information. After contacting him I was sent this link to a video on him in his studio preparing for his current exhibition in Le Pin, not far from Paris. His studio is in the south not far from Avignon.

Ceramic stoneware plate in gray glaze with scrafitto decoration of horse signed, Dominique Pouchain. Pouchain is a contemporary artist and son of the French ceramic artist Rolande Jacques Pouchain. His work often is in the motifs of animal imagery, the bestiaire from his childhood imagination. HIs current work is much more sculptural and fantasie.

skin series bud vases by the mighty bear cats

the skin series bud vases are made of a heat sensitive plastic that when in contact with temperatures above 250 degrees will shrink in size. at first glance the vases appear to be made of a thin fragile porcelain, however once the vase is picked up it is found to be soft and flexible. because each vase is hand made and produced individually no two are exactly alike, however they all retain similar characteristics allowing the size and style of any vase to fit in with the others. we just received another edition of them at pavilion.
designed and produced by the mighty bearcats.
