In creating a line of pottery, Montreal based ceramist Hugo Didier combines old traditional style with one that is found in contemporary production. The effect is a ceramic that is engaging and modern. Through his work, he proposes a reflection on objects that surrounds us. Where, who and how do they are made? What relationship we maintain with them? The "Not made in China" message, that can be found on his porcelain, promotes the idea of producing and consuming locally made goods.
With the legacy bequeathed by his parents and his grandparents ceramists, Hugo Didier is able to offer work that respects the rule of art. His pieces must, before all else, be functional and pleasant to use. All his work is hand turned; logos or images on his pieces are his own.
