The great peculiarity of the work of Gisèle Buthod-Garçon (born in 1954) is to have known how to combine the “Raku” cooking technique with very fatty enamels. It is a paradox on which she establishes her notoriety. The quest for a beautiful quality of enamel is primodrial with her. That is to say the materiality, depth, transparency and dynamics of the light highlights. This quality is generally obtained at high heat (1300 ° C), but it succeeds in the feat of obtaining it at low temperature. The major components of her reflection are the volumes in space and the sculptural dimension of the pieces she creates. Earth, fire, form, enamel, nature and travel are his sources of inspiration. Her work is of incredible variety, she never stops experimenting and renewing her style.
