MarilynVince has been a ceramist for fifteen years.
Born in 1974, after studying translator-interpreter in France, Italy and Switzerland, and an international career, it was in 1999 on her return from New York that she was introduced to Ceramics (modeling, turning and decor). She then quickly began a professional training with the master turner Augusto Tozzola, followed by various specialized internships in France and Switzerland.
After 4 years spent in a first workshop in Belleville, she decided in 2008 to take over the glove workshop founded by Elisée Vince , her grandfather in the 1950s, in Issy-les-Moulineaux.
Having always taught ceramic techniques, it was only natural that in 2011 she founded the Association Terres d'Issy in this place steeped in memory.
She creates there, and provides courses and internships for an adult audience.
Marilyn has also been involved for 8 years in DNMADE ceramics and textiles (digital crafts option) in Sèvres. Creating and transmitting are for her inseparable.
After a work of unique pieces in Sandstone from Iraq which will have earned her various Prizes in the world of contemporary art ceramics, Marilyn now focuses her creation on a more utilitarian production (small limited series in porcelain).
Turning, modelling, casting and enamelling are the techniques she uses.
Each piece has been previously thought out, designed, prototyped and integrated in an approach where purity of form and future use take precedence over decor.
Finesse and apparent fragility are at the center of his work.
On mass-tinted porcelain, muted or pastel colors and the virtual absence of enamel are an integral part of its creation.
