Olivia Cognet: Ceramic Artistry Revived

Post Image

Olivia Cognet‘s recent move from Los Angeles to Vallauris on the Côte d’Azur has sparked a new chapter in her ceramic artistry. Raised in Nice, France, and trained at the Villa Arson, Cognet’s return to her homeland has reinvigorated her creativity. Inspired by the cultural history of the French Riviera and California’s influence, she aims to create monumental pieces that push the boundaries of her craft.

Her new collection showcases sculptures, lamps, mirrors, and vases in abstract, organic forms. Starting each design on paper, Cognet then uses local clay available in three natural shades to bring her visions to life. The latest addition to her portfolio includes sculptural white stoneware lamps, featuring squat bases with geometric shapes and oversized lampshades that create a captivating contrast of weight and lightness.

Cognet draws inspiration from the legendary French ceramicist Roger Capron, who played a pivotal role in establishing Vallauris as an art hub. Like Capron, Cognet is deeply rooted in the local pottery community and finds inspiration in the region’s rich artistic heritage.

Her studio, located in Vallauris, is a testament to her appreciation for tradition and craftsmanship. Renovated with respect for its history, the studio features elements sculpted by Capron himself, creating a space that is both inspiring and welcoming to visitors.
