A love story

  • • Pascale is a visual artist and ceramicist
  • • Her favourite material is porcelain
  • • She opened her workshop By Rita in 2014

Pascale Morin started ceramics having previously worked as an illustrator, scenographer and visual artist creating paper objects. In 2014 she purchased her own kiln and opened her workshop By Rita. Her work is inspired by the emotion of life, which she wishes to represent through her craft. A passionate craftswoman, she describes the creation of a piece as an irrepressible need to express with her hands through the material and the work: "the start of the process is like an urgency to create, and the baking of the clay is filled with quivering and excitement." When talking about clay, Pascale describes a true love story with a living material, a partner in creation with whom she must dialogue in order to go forward and bring to life her creations.

Abysse

Abysse is part of a series of aquatic pieces from Pascale Morin’s collection entitled "entre terre et mer", meaning “between land and sea”. It looks like a porcelain cora with craters, seaweed and frozen grass. Pascale collects plants, which are then modelled and reworked together with layers of porcelain to give the shapes of craters and wild grass. This piece is made of unbleached white porcelain, glazed in small strokes to give a wet and shiny effect.

Astre Houle

This sculpture is part of Pascale Morin’s new pieces that come from researching materials, textures, traces or scars that personalise and shape us. It is a flat sculpture with undulations, made of biscuit porcelain lightly covered with transparent enamel in small touches. This piece is punctuated by traces, paths, holes like air bubbles left on the sand or stone.

Récif

Récif is a small sculpture straight out of a curiosity cabinet and is part of Pascale Morin’s series of aquatic pieces. It looks like a rock out of water, like a coral with craters, seaweed, little tentacles of anemones frozen in their movements. This piece is made of unbleached white porcelain, glazed in small strokes to give a wet and shiny effect.
