SOPHIE PARACHEY

Sophie Parachey

Marseille, FRANCE

“Unrefined and primitive forms, reminiscent of organic magma flow, blend with softer, delicate, and more subtle shapes.”

Always passionate about ancestral art and crafts, Sophie discovered Central America crafting techniques at 23. Meeting artisans, she understood she was willing to practice arts and crafts herself too.

She had practiced ceramics as a kid and loved the touch of the clay. After different travels around ancestral arts and crafts, she started to feel the need to share those experiences through shapes and volumes and started designing the first objects.

Value in the details

From Tradition to Contemporary Elegance

Each piece is hand-built in stoneware in our studio in Marseille, south of France. Sophie Parachey designs every object in the collection, inspired by her travels and research in Central America. Most pieces are handcrafted using ancestral pottery techniques learned in Mexico and transmitted by traditional craftsmen. She uses these ancestral techniques to create contemporary objects.

Once built, the piece needs to dry for a few weeks, and then goes for the first firing. After this step, it is glazed using different techniques. Then a second firing provides the final aspect of the piece. Every piece requires between 3 to 6 hours of work.
