I want my pieces to look extremely simple, to achieve the elegance of a dancer whose seemingly effortless movement is in fact the result of months of training and technical mastery.
Ismaël Carré graduated from the Paris Music Conservatory as a sound engineer, but after an encounter with ceramics, he was immediately enthralled. Soon the tones of his notes took on the chromatic hues of the rainbow.

Porcelain is a particularly demanding medium to work with, capricious and unpredictable, but the challenge of taming it is what stimulates Carré. He works exclusively with porcelain from Limoges in liquid form, of the consistency of crêpe batter, that he pours into molds he has created. Told that it was impossible to put color on porcelain, he immediately took up the gauntlet. His vivid colors fading to white, etched with graphic motifs using a technique called sgrafitto, are now his signature.

He has been located in the South-West of France since 2016, when opened his atelier in the center of Toulouse.
