Porcelain Eggs Decorated in Elements of Flora and Fauna by Juliette Clovis

“Ceropégia,” 2017. 16x21x14 cm. Limoges porcelain, enamel and biscuit, overglaze green hand painted.

Previously working with the female figure in her sculptural pieces mentioned here and here, Juliette Clovis’ newest series of porcelain sculptures is centered around the form of an egg. Each was crafted by Clovis in La Manufacture La Seynie, the oldest Limoges porcelain manufacturer in France. Some of her eggs, which are decorated in a similar fashion to many of her earlier pieces with spikes, floral clusters, and hand-painted markings, are currently on view at Galerie Mondapart in France through May 4, 2017. You can see more images of Clovis’ porcelain forms on her Instagram and website.
