Elodie's Ceramics: Craftsmanship, Creativity, and Constant Improvement

All Elodie's ceramics are made by herself in her workshop in Marseille she shared with two other ceramists.
Her main tool is the electric wheel, and she uses only stoneware as clay. White, beige and red. She fired her ceramics twice in an electric kiln. One fire is at 980°C, then she glazes her ceramics and put it back into the kiln at 1280°C.
For a teapot, which is her specialty, She need 1 month of work, from the ball of clay to the final product. She does maximum 4 teapots in the same time. This is the most difficult piece to do in ceramic because of all the requirement it asks. Every steps can be fatal until the end and this is all this suspense and the technicity it demands which makes Elodie loving her job.

She also prepares her own glaze. She does researches for months to find which consistence and what color she wants. This is fascinating and chemical calculus above all.
To always improve herself she does a formation every year in glaze researches or in other ceramic techniques.
