 MaritÚ Labat, Potter


Background and activities
From Paris to Normandy ... I worked for 20 years for a big name in the field of table arts and decoration before coming to settle in the Dordogne.
My passion for pottery dates back 20 years, when I discovered that the feel of clay gave me a real sensation. I like to transform the clay, to create shapes by turning or by pounding it. The clay is MAGIC.
After several training courses, I opened my studio-shop in August 2006, in Issigeac. My creations soon met with success!
My production is mainly focused on table arts but I also create jewellery. To decorate the objects that I create in earth tones, mixed with a bright green/blue and a chocolate/grey and also a red enamel on fired clay, I use a completely innovative process.
My studio is located at the rear of the shop (with its wheel and kiln), the public can watch all the stages of creation and making.
