Dominique Thomas Swirl of Life

Dominique Thomas is a ceramic artist whose atelier, based in the heart of the Montagne Noire and surrounded by nature, is a source of inspiration for her work that follows the rhythm of seasons.

She started with the study of cinematography but everything seemed to bring her back to her first love: ceramics. Augusto Tozzola, an Italian ceramist living in Paris, took her as an apprentice and taught her all she had to know about the craft. She also benefited from working with Helena Klug, Brazilian, who introduced her about the technique of high temperature enamels on stoneware and porcelain. The extensive knowledge she gained from the people she met along the way lead her to create her own ceramics and exhibit her work at the ArtCeram Terres d’Empreintes biennial in Sèvres.

Besides, Dominique Thomas shares her passion for the art of ceramics with students from preschool to middle school and has also conducted workshops in Paris and at the Lavoir in Clamart (an exhibition and training center).
