Cécile CUVELIER

la biographie

Cécile and Stéphane Cuvelier, born in 1964 and 1958, are originally from the North of France where they live and work as ceramic sculptors.

 

Stéphane discovered ceramics in 1977 during a wood firing. The passion for this method of firing never left him and he later built several ovens.

 

He creates contemporary pieces called ‘Architerretures’ made of stoneware and porcelain as well as outdoor sculptures for ponds and gardens: mitres, fountains, gargoyles and totems.

In 2001, Cécile devoted herself solely to clay and the first ‘Lolette’ was created using salt-glazed stoneware fired in their large oven.

 

Since 2008, copies have been produced in bronze. They both partake in the manufacturing process including retouching of the wax, chasing, and patina.
