Maëlenn LE CLAINCHE
A very inspiring young ceramist
Maëlenn LE CLAINCHE is a young ceramist who launched her own workshop in 2017. Native of Brittany, Maëlenn first started her vocational training in the restoration of works of art in Paris before going on to a diploma in the 'Métiers d'Art en Céramique' in Antibes.
Enamoured with Art and Travel, she finds her inspiration all over the world, from Madagascar to the United States, via China and Vietnam. She ended up in Paris where she set up her workshop in a tiny natural haven.
Travel and the Beauty of our world are definitely at the core of her creative process.
Maëlenn chose ceramic and the delicacy of fine porcelain to express the ambiance and emotions harvested during her journeys. Each one of her works tantalizes our imagination and invites us for an interior voyage. Every time she opens her kiln, it is a new encounter, a new inspiration, and the result of long hours of toil and research.
"MAEN", a young brand of refined 'Art de la table'
Maëlenn LE CLAINCHE launched her brand in tableware which she called "MAEN". Crockery, bowls, vases, are made out of fine porcelain, all very delicate, sensual, and manufactured with a meticulous savoir-faire. The alchemy of colours, be they gold, Mediterranean blue, sandy or pink... and which enliven objects of our daily life, is pure poetry and the ideal means for us to share precious and intimate moments.
