Fabienne GillesCeramicist, Montreuil, France
Handcrafted in France. In a celebration of craftsmanship and manufactoring traditions, we tour each French region to bring you our curated selection of exceptional homeware, gifts and collectibles.
Ateliers d’Art de France unites over 6,000 French artisans, selected using three criteria: 1. All pieces handcrafted in an atelier in France. 2. Technical mastery of a specific savoir-faire. 3. Creativity and quality of the pieces.
Her ceramics and sculptures are playful and spontaneous. Some of her themes are friendship, pets and food; her rosy-cheeked women are often depicted sharing a glass of wine, a cup of tea or a cuddle with a cat.
Fabienne is a co-founder of the Ceramic 11 Festival in Paris. When she is not showing her work at art fairs throughout France, she can be found at her atelier outside Paris.
