Quebec Pottery

Marie-Pierre Drolet

Wakefield, Quebec

Native of the countryside, in Outaouais, province of Quebec, Marie-Pierre grew up within a family in which arts were a part of the daily life. She learned ceramic from her father, who was a potter, and continued her exploration during her studies in visual arts, and through personal self-study and experimentation. During the summer 2016, she learned Korean techniques with Master Lee Kang-Hyo at Alfred University, New York.

Marie is mostly inspired by the power and beauty of nature, an inexhaustible source of mystical experiences. The authenticity of this life in nature can be also found in the direct contact with the material, their transformation, and the magical alchemy of seeing them become usual objects.
