Jérôme Hirson___along a tree lined path


a studio visit with Jérôme Hirson

Jérôme Hirson • Artist • M AAH



Along a tree lined path, where leaves shroud a tinkling brook, loose yourself to the charm of an old stone building whose walls proffer a welcoming smile.

Jérôme Hirson created his workshop in 2010 in Berry. Since 2017, he has gone to a new studio in Touraine surrounded by nature and silence.

Jérôme’s tableware pottery is influenced by popular folk art: plates, bowls, jugs and dishes. His characteristically clean and simple lines also define his individual pieces: boxes, jars, vases and monoliths.

Trained by Dauphine Scalbert, Jérôme Hirson chooses to use hand modelling, enabling him to feel the energy within the clay without dominating it. Seeking to reduce the obstacles between himself and the clay, he distances himself from the potter’s wheel.

Spontaneous hand movements create irregularities and asymmetries. Pleasure is the companion to the solitude of creation. Sober lines and imperfect surfaces define the aesthetic. For the creation to emerge, the potter must first become one with the clay, liberating his sensibility.
