Dalo Ceramics with a human face

French ceramists Daniel Derock and Loïc de Bailliencourt share a passion for 20th century Design and, more specifically, post-war Art Deco from the 50s to the 80s. An archivist and a scientific mission director in their former lives, they teamed up in 2007 to create ceramic pieces that offer figurative lines and a primitive aesthetic, pushing forward values dear to their hearts, such as hope and solidarity. 

Creating a visual genre that conjures the Cloutier Brothers, Derval or Picasso, the duo likes to engage in various techniques: turning, molding, or 'colombinage’ – the assembling of clay tubes to create a shape. Final pieces are sometimes enameled. 

Dalo ceramics are available at Leclaireur Hérold.
