Christiane's passion for colour was first stirred during her studies at the Ecole des Arts Decoratifs in Geneva. After completing her studies, she worked in private studios and taught ceramics at the International School of Geneva. Her first studio as an independent artist was established in Hermance, Geneva in 1971. She moved to Tuscany in 1979 where she presently resides with her husband. Her home studio occupies the ground floor of what was once a medieval rectory-- her showroom is across the street in a former chapel.
Christiane Perrochon's ceramics are the result of her continuous research in ceramic glazes over decades-- an on-going testimony to her enduring passion for her craft.
Her beautiful hues have become her specialty-- decades of experience has allowed her to master the complicated practice of bonding richly saturated colours to each hand-shaped piece. Each glaze yields a different chromatic result depending on the support used. Be it stoneware or porcelain, drastically different results can be obtained using the same glaze.
