Visual artist and designer Pascale Girardin is exhibiting her latest work this weekend at souk@sat in Montreal. This year's collection takes its inspiration from the tones and textures found in the St. Lawrence River’s rocky shores. The award-winning creative will be showcasing an elegant array of plates and bowls in subtle shades of black, grey and white, as well as her Totem Series – a collection of elegant geometric sculptures whose seamless white surfaces gracefully showcase the artist’s painterly gestures.
Also on exhibition this weekend at the One of a Kind Show in Toronto is Atelier Girardin X Agathe Palavioux. Under Pascale Girardin's artistic direction, Agathe Palavioux is currently offering a collection of tableware of understated simplicity. Pascale Girardin's experience and expertise have helped Agathe develop a style of gesture that enables her to create subtle variations in shape, making each piece unique. All of Agathe's items are decorated with glazes tested and developed by Pascale Girardin over the past 20 years. Atelier Girardin supports emerging artists by providing them with the structure and expertise to help them produce creative works. Agathe Palavioux graduated from the prestigious Longchamp school of ceramics in the Burgundy region of France. She has worked at Pascale Girardin's studio in Montreal, glazing and supervising the firing cycles of the Atelier's prestigious productions.
Agathe Palavioux's tableware collections have been showcased at Montreal's souk@sat and were recently featured in the cookbook Au gré des champs, which highlights artisan cheeses and recipes from Quebec.
