French ceramists Daniel Derock and Loïc de Bailliencourt share a passion for 20th Century design and more specifically, post-war Art Deco from the 50’s to the 80’s. An archivist and a scientific mission director in their former lives, they teamed up in 2007 to create ceramic pieces that offer figurative lines and a primitive aesthetic, pushing forward values dear to their hearts, such as hope and solidarity. Creating a visual genre that conjures the Cloutier Brothers, Derval or Picasso, the duo likes to engage in various techniques: turning, molding, or ‘colombinage’ – the assembling of clay tubes to create a shape.
