Françoise Quiney

Françoise learnt ceramics through her contact with Janet Stedman, Jean-Pol Betton, Jean-Pierre Cluzel and Mary’o. She equally enjoys utilitarian works and sculpture. Everyday art is thrown or shaped by hand. Her sculptures are made with slabs, stamping or balls of clay. Her approach with humanity examines connections, closeness or distance, silence. She posits immobility, slows down the hysterical speed of our globalisation. Françoise questions time immemorial, builds suspension bridges with shamans and bird men. Acting as a lookout or a dreaming child she transmits an ancient heritage that blinds contemporary society. All her works are currently fired in gas kilns. Visit her showroom !
