Christine Audet holds a BFA from Concordia University, Montreal. Working in ceramics, she produces decorative and functional pieces inspired by her travels, architecture and archaeology. Cooked with gas at high temperature, in a reducing atmosphere, or using Japanese technique called raku, her blocks, balustrades, pillars, arches and ornamental elements attempt to awaken secrets of the pre-Columbian era in which material erosion and patina help illustrate the passage of time.
