Simone Bodmer-Turner, magician of clay

Before launching her own studio, American ceramist Simone Bodmer-Turner borrowed the know-how of Japanese and Mexican artisans, which she has been able to deploy through several collections: “The Permanent Collection,” which pays tribute to Mesoamerican tableware through ceramics with curved forms emphasizing “negative spaces”; and the second part of this series, “Permanent Collection II,” which introduces sculptural pieces, some of which are dedicated to floral arrangements, such as ikebana. A world that the designer also knows how to communicate with those of other artists, as in her latest collaboration to date, with the artist Emma Kohlmann, who decorated 38 ceramics with her paintings.
