Dominique Plamondon

Having divided my life between Quebec City and a corner of the forest in the Chaudière-Appalaches region, I quickly became aware of the consequences of human activity on nature. Among other things, I've observed non-compliant septic systems, waste management, over-occupation of the land, massive tree-cutting and animal exploitation. All these actions have repercussions on our living environments and biodiversity. As a result, I'm limiting the volume of ceramic pieces I produce, in keeping with my ecological values and lifestyle.

Until now, the pieces I've produced have been function-oriented. I like to integrate a decor that suggests my definition of happiness. To achieve this, I draw my inspiration mainly from memories and anecdotes that make me smile.


La Maison des métiers d'art de Québec is a cultural organization dedicated to contemporary craft practices. Located in the heart of Quebec City, it boasts 25 ceramic, textile and sculpture studios spread over seven floors. Its mandates include training, research and creation, as well as the development and promotion of fine crafts. In partnership with Cégep Limoilou, it offers technical courses for the Diplôme d'études collégiales (DEC) - Techniques de métiers d'art - option céramique, construction textile et sculpture, and enables professional artists to enrich their practices through intensive training or research residencies.
