French ceramist Eric Astoul (b. 1954, Morocco) infuses his sculptures with the essence of ancient and modern earthenware he has encountered along his travels in France, England, Japan, and Africa. In 1982, after training in various artists’ studios and significant travel abroad, he settled in the ceramicists’ community of La Borne in central France, known for its distinct stoneware ceramics (grès). There, he fires each piece for a period of eight days in his wood­burning Anagama kiln.
