“ Since the beginning, Marianne has favored porcelain as a means of expression, a material that challenges her for its texture and finesse and poses constant challenges.”

Marianne Steinmetzer

Marianne Steinmetzer lives and works in Bridel. In 2004, she carries out her first paintings on glazed porcelain and creates tableware in a modern classical style. In 2010, she became interested in ceramics and the creation of porcelain paper stamped candle holders. She further turns towards turned or casted pieces in porcelain and progresses towards relief or colored slips.

Since her beginnings, she favors porcelain as a means of expression, a material that challenges for its texture and finesse but also fragility and instability in cooking. Her ceramics question the links between function and aesthetics. Utilitarian and functional in form, the containers become unique objects or small limited sets. Turned or cast in plaster molds, decorated with colored slips or painted by hand, the bowls, cups, dishes or tealights are then high fired to confer the sealing and translucent aspect specific to porcelain.
