Géraldine Petit-Gras    –    Ceramic Artist

 

Born in France, Géraldine Petit-Gras grew up watching explorer and conservationist Jacques-Yves Cousteau. As he unraveled the mysteries of the sea, he also drew attention to the interconnection of species and the necessity to protect the fragile balance that regulates every natural ecosystems. She spent most of her summers gathering shells on the beaches of La Rochelle and Biarritz, and sailing along the coasts of the Mediterranean Sea and witnessed first-hand the deterioration of these natural habitats.

As an Environmental Artist, her body of work reflects her concerns about what mankind is doing to the Earth and consequently to itself. The delicate and serene qualities of her porcelain pieces evoke both the beauty and fragility of nature. Using a marine imagery, the birthplace of living organisms, she draws attention to sustainable development as the only way to ensure the survival of our species.

Her intent is to engage the viewer on a personal journey that would bring about environmental change.
