I am Flora. I'm a French potter or mudbaker, as I like to define myself. I find inspiration in natural forms and wabi-sabi aesthetic philosophy. I like to work around organic lines and muted colours, with a strong focus on functionality. Simple, serene and soulful, all my pieces are slowmade from my garden studio in Greenwich (London, UK).

Over the years, I’ve developed a strong connection to the Japanese concept of wabi-sabi. I am constantly learning to welcome acceptance, transience, and imperfection in my work: there is beauty to be admired in every flaw.
Simple, rustic, and organic surfaces remind us that we are alive and that we all have a personal journey to accomplish: every crack, every print, every trace, every mark, every handling of the clay will give it a particular memory and will leave a permanent scar, once fired for the first time. After this, clay becomes vessel, and its proper journey begins.
« There is a crack in everything. That's how the light gets in. »
