Terres, Caroline Vernet and Luis Jeronimo, Ceramicists
A graduate of the National College for Applied Arts and Crafts
in 1990, I discovered my passion for clay at the age of nine

Settled in the Dordogne region since 1994, our
studio-boutique-school is located in the centre of Bergerac,

The boutique is an unexpected space, recommended and noticed
by lovers of crafts. The studio is a privileged place, open to

our hands, and lets us use its multiple properties. Tactile,
visual or auditory, infinitely valuable to the human being on
a daily basis, we shape it to make many hand-made objects.
Arts Terres is Caroline and Luis, it is a journey to the
centre of the earth.
