The Atelier Terres d'Angely was created in 2006 by Isabelle Nadeau, ceramist. Indeed, after advanced studies in chemistry and scientific journalism, Isabelle decided to complete a year of training at the Institute of French Ceramics in Sèvres and found her way with her diploma as a ceramic turner, obtained in 2004.

She then set up her workshop in the South West, in Charente Maritime, in the heart of Saint Jean d'Angely. Isabelle manufactures her utilitarian and decorative porcelain objects there. Unique, each of its pieces is made and decorated by hand.

If at first glance her work seems classic and refined, the meticulous details of the painting of each creation are noticed very quickly, always on a white porcelain background, Isabelle creates different types of products: vases, cups and other families. The shapes are usually very simple like cylinders or cubes. It offers several collections, all drawn or taken from original photos, which offer a singular universe always around colors. The Berlingot collection, for example, is made up of cylinder-shaped vases available in 2 sizes and 2 different colors. On each vase is painted a color gradient that invites you to think of a magnificent sunset. Perfect for adding a touch of color to your interior with the vases or cups from the same collection that you will find at HISTOIRES FRANÇAISES.

It is an elegant and delicate work that Isabelle invites us to discover in her studio, a meticulous work, full of sensitivity and poetry. His style, with its sober and refined side as well as its forms, could qualify his creations as Japanese style. Isabelle finds her inspiration during her travels accompanied by her camera. Travel has always been an integral part of her since a very young age, especially Asia.

In sharing, Isabelle also gives pottery lessons in her studio. She always puts her scientific rigor to good use. Indeed, when designing Terre d'Angely objects, Isabelle combines her know-how as a chemist with that of a ceramic turner by exploring, weighing and testing; constantly looking for new recipes for clay, engobes, oxides, enamel.

In the workshop, there are three stages for the design: shaping, decoration and firing. All its pieces are shaped by hand with the technique of turning or casting. The shaping of porcelain requires precision and great patience because the manufacturing time is 1 month including the drying time. The decoration is a determining part, which is why Isabelle opts for simple lines of color applied with a brush. Firing, on the other hand, is carried out after drying, in an oven, while waiting to discover the final piece.

All the materials used by Atelier Terres d'Angely are 100% French and eco-responsible; fundamental values ​​in Isabelle's approach.
