Gisèle Buthod-Garçon is French and lives in the region of Occitania. She became aware of her passion for clay in 1979, after visiting Senegal. The raw aspect of clay, the burning vivacity it offers and its carnal appearance are at the source of this attraction. Ever since she adopted ceramics and started work as a professional in 1982, she has continually experimented, relentlessly learning and solving problems with unequalled stubbornness. All her work is conditioned by her adoption of a specific firing method, known as raku firing. Oily enamel and raku seemed absolutely irreconcilable, yet Gisèle Buthod-Garçon has established her fame on the very basis of this paradox. She combines rough surfaces and formal harmony. She creates as though echoing the arid, bleak landscapes that surround her. Her work translates the immemorial trace of human fragility and the timelessness of things.

Stéphanie Le Follic-Hadida, curator of the exhibition dedicated to the artist at Keramis, has brought together various authors: Ludovic Recchia, Yves Mausen, Katherine Vanderhaeghe, Anthony Girardi, Virgile Loyer, Wang Dong and Jean-Paul Rivault, who each testify in their own way to what they experience when confronted with the works of Gisèle Buthod-Garçon.

The book accompanied the same name exhibition at Keramis from 21st April to 2nd September 2018.
