Léon Serre

 For the last 50 years, Léon has been working as a ceramist. He studied at the Fine Arts in Perpignan, Toulouse, and Paris and has also followed the architect-decorator career. He has won several first prizes and has exhibited mainly in France and especially in Paris. 

For the last ten years, Léon been focusing on the primitive techniques of ceramic firing, oxidation research, the effects of smoking etc.

Every piece is handmade and unique - a result of his technique, which gives his pieces a variety of textures and colors achieved in part by carbonate salts.

Léon's ceramics have an ethnic aspect, with the mixture of iridescent colors. He likes the contrast between the outer rough and crude touch and pearly bright inner glaze.
