Associated with the ceramicist community of La Borne in central France, known for its distinct stoneware, Eric Astoul creates decorative earthenware vases and pots, as well as stone sculptures that contain rough geometrical forms and shapes. Astoul has traveled extensively throughout Europe and Africa, and is influenced by both the ancient and modern ceramics he has encountered in those continents. To create his stoneware, which features textured surfaces and both angular and curvilinear forms, he fires each piece for eight days in a wood-burning “Anagama” kiln, only the second of its kind in La Borne.
