Following studies in art school, Héloïse Bariol specialized in ceramics. In his encounter with this material it seemed obvious to him to make tableware. Héloïse has set up a production of utility parts. Unique or in small series, they are made of red earthenware, turned or shaped. More or less slipped, decorated with metal oxide juices and industrial dyes, enamelled and fired in an electric oven at around 1080°.
The ceramist relies on traditional forms to make objects that go with the times. The glazed earth constitutes a support rich in materials and forms to experiment with a pictorial work.
Through the production of ceramic volumes which are most often everyday objects such as bowls, plates, dishes, pitchers, Héloïse Bariol seeks dialogues between shapes and colors, as well as a field of interactions between the user, the object and the surrounding space. In search of mobility, she tries to question the porosity between different categories, utilitarian/sculpture, painting/sculpture, plan/volume, by exploring the material possibilities offered by ceramics.
