Françoise Blain

I was born in 1955 and started working as a ceramicist in 1995 in the Nantes area.
In 2002 I moved to Crézancy en Sancerre 10km from La Borne.
Course in pot-throwing with Suzanne Schürch in the Tours area, and a glazing course with Charles Hair.
I work with porcelain because I enjoy high temperature glazes, their gentleness, their luminosity and the types of white which exist.
And I love raku for its spontaneity, the direct contact with fire, and the love of materials. With its thickness and the layers of slip and glazes, Raku is perfect for large scale, one-off pieces.
Meeting a number of people has led me to design and produce Ikebana containers.

I organise COURSES for Adults and for Children during school holidays and on Wednesdays.
