Katia Jacquet

Creating stigmatic objects in primitive materials, totems that carry the energy instilled in their making.

Katia Jacquet is using wood and clay; she relies on simple geometrical forms to create tactile objects in search of balance. The sculptural ceramics are also functional, they are made of stoneware, modelled, and turned in a traditional way and then covered with glazes resulting from her research.

Private Choice 2023 presents a selection of sculptural fruit bowls entitled Hilla inspired by the photographic work of Bernd and Hilla Becher. It was the series of water towers, encyclopedically and systematically referenced by the German photographers, that fascinated Katia Jacquet. The glazed ceramics adopt the geometry of industrial buildings and the refined aesthetics of modernist architecture, which never cease to nourish the artist’s imagination.
