Ceramic pieces inspired by the landscapes of California

Drawing inspiration from the lights and shadows of the landscapes of
California, its modernist architecture and intense nature, French artist and designer Olivia Cognet makes her ceramic pieces. Since moving to Los Angeles in 2016, she explores different types of shapes and sizes, creating big bas-reliefs and totems, as well as chairs, tables, lamps and vases.

The pieces, handmade by the artist in her studio, all
share the same abstract and graphic standards. Infusing a modern take on the great tradition of decorative arts, her works are both functional and evocative.

Olivia Cognet grew up in Nice on the Côte d’Azur, studied at the Villa
Arson and was nourished by the brilliant masters from the school of
Vallauris, from Picasso to Roger Capron; for her, ceramics are a key
element of architecture. She starts by exploring ideas on paper, before moving to stoneware, using a local clay that comes in three natural shades.
