Atelier Mzo

The first thing that comes to mind when I imagine a new ceramic object is its shape. I'm completely obsessed by straight lines, angles and the negative spaces they can create. This is very apparent in my sketchbooks, which are full of hastily drawn 2D profiles of pieces.


I also pay a great deal of attention to the function of the objects I create. Indeed, I attach a great deal of importance to their usefulness and durability.


So I like to spend hours thinking about the ideal dimensions, making calculations to the nearest millimetre and sometimes even making models. This constraint of functionality allows me to achieve a certain creativity that lies dormant within me.

The other important aspect of my creative approach is to leave plenty of room for bare clay. I'm particularly fond of dark clays for their raw aspect, which reminds me that, however sophisticated, the object is made from a natural material.


The things that inspire me on a daily basis are mainly architecture, light, roads and mountains. For a long time, I immortalized these four elements through photography. My taste for lines certainly comes from years of practice, always looking for the right framing and vanishing lines.

I'm also drawn to hushed, misty atmospheres, with soft tones and low light. This contributes to my well-being, which is why I try to incorporate a touch of all these aspects into my creations.
