She had me at ‘porcelain pineapple’. French ceramicist Françoise Joris makes delicate, fantastical objects that are clearly inspired by nature… and fruit (of her imagination AND pineapples) :
“My approach is free and detached from contingencies; It is the fruit of my imagination.
The completion of a piece gives birth to the design of the next creating a network of invisible but strong links, which continuously fuels my artistic approach and guides my explorations.
So much remains to be said and done with porcelain, a primary and yet so noble material.”
