About

My Art

Hi! I’m Violaine. A queer and French ceramic artist based in Berlin since four years. I am currently working in my studio in Treptowerstraße, creating ceramic collections in collaboration with local concept stores, galleries, selling directly from the studio shop and teaching potter’s wheel. In my work, I experiment with various ornamental handles around my vases, inspired by the cosmic and botanical forms that surrounds meI am collaborating with various creators: tattoo artists, illustrators, cabinet makers, photographers, painters, musicians, etc. as I’m always in research of new encounters and magical discoveries.

Come to visit!

The Studio

My ceramic studio is located at Treptowerstr. 12 in Berlin, Neukölln. It’s equipped with four wheels, one kiln, two wedging plaster tables, a lot of shelves and tables installed in a wheel room and a glazing room with all the materials and tools needed to create high quality ceramics in a cozy and safe environment.
