About

 

Made for you with Love

"Terra Ceramics is the result of my long-lasting passion for ceramics. I love simplicity and it inspires me everyday to create objects that are both functional and unique.

I still remember vividly spending whole summer days covered in mud at the bottom of a tree my mother had just watered and playing kitchen. My relationship with nature has played a great role and I knew early on that I wanted it as part of my life. I wanted to live a life in the modern world that would be connected to the earth and respectful towards it.

I grew up in suburbian Paris and as an only child I have always been quite solitary.  When i discovered the wheel more than 10 years ago I immediately fell in love. It was the perfect friend for me. Finding the perfect shape and the perfect imperfections has been a long journey that i can see myself pursuing until my old age. When the kiln opens there is always a lesson to be learned and the next piece brings me a little closer to the natural perfection I am looking for." 

 

In her Prague studio, Marie Poirot likes to explore the endless possibilities of the clay and in her pieces you will always find an organic touch.

You can find Marie's pieces in re-known restaurants around Prague including the Hilton Old Prague, Levitate Restaurant or Casa de Carli.

 "Allowing space for accidents is the hardest thing to learn as it requires to let go of the rules. This quest characterizes my great love and respect for nature and the beauty of organic shapes."
