In her workshop at the Goldsmith's located in Saint-Denis, Pia Chevalier now develops objects that border on the unique piece and the work of art. She leaves room for total spontaneity in the process of creation and composition of her pieces.
Pia likes to be in direct contact with raw materials to then transform them and create unique pieces. Her work focuses on the everyday object that she understands as a sculpture capable of arousing emotion and creating an emotional bond. Her obsession is to give solemnity to these objects in order to make them endearing. Pia appreciates the defects of materials, their tendency to degradation, and entropy, which leads her to accept the unforeseen, the ephemeral. Today she works with clay, steel, brass, and copper, each project leads her to discover new materials and pushes her to confront materials, to experiment.
Pia understands ceramics in a very intuitive way, the techniques she likes are modeling and pinching. She finds in this material very great freedom of expression which gives birth to disproportionate, funny sculptures often inspired by the culinary universe such as octopus and donuts where the handle becomes the cookie and the enamel the flavor.
