Alice Gavalet

Alice Gavalet, born in 1978, is a renowned French ceramic artist who masterfully blends textile inspirations with neo-Sottsassian forms. A graduate of prestigious Parisian art schools and a former trainee of Elisabeth Garouste, Gavalet's vibrant ceramic pieces showcase her exceptional skill as a colorist and her delight in disproportions. Her work exudes playfulness and creativity, with unique combinations of curves, bends, and overlapping glazes defining her distinctive style.
