Solenne Belloir

Medium Cylindrical Basket


Amazing coil-built ceramic basket handmade by artist Solenne Belloir. The basket is made of white stoneware clay with a transparent glaze to keep the basket safe from stains and dirt.

Solenne is a ceramist artist from Paris who makes unique ceramic pieces. The baskets were influenced by the basketry works of fascinating Japanese artists, such as Iizuka Rokansai and Sugiura Noriyoshi. In the creations by Solenne, the presence of matter is as important as the lack of it, she aspires to leave only what is essential to her. "I like to think that my pieces are not only built of soil - but also air."

Technically, She works with different high-temperature clays, often with grog, alternating between white sandstone and black sandstone or coloring the clay. She alternates between wheel throwing and modeling, which allows her to combine different types of shapes and explore the endless possibilities of clay.
