Born in 1960
A diverse range of influences have informed the work of Françoise Dufayard. During the late 1970s Françoise studied ceramics at the Ateliers de Fontblanche in Vitrolles, then she travelled in Asia (1981-1982).
Françoise uses a red earthenware clay fired to 1040C° in a 500 litre gas kiln. She has developed a very personal interpretation of terre vernissée, or slip ware, which creates a translucent quality that gives her decoration painterly qualities not often found in this medium. This can be attributed in part to her exploration of Eastern ceramics as found on visits to Nepal, India, Burma, Thailand, Japan, Korea, China, Uzbekistan and recentely Tibet. Her evident brushstrokes can be read as personal reflections of this Eastern influence.
