Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful. -William Morris

Florence Pénault discovered the pleasure to work with clay in 2004 when she moved from France to a small town in Connecticut. Pénault was trained by Darrell Finnegan, a Boston ceramicist, and at the Harvard Ceramic Program, in addition to learning techniques through different workshops in Paris. Inspired by the book An Unknown Craftsman: A Japanese Insight Into Beauty, she is dedicated to create functional pieces, with reference to functional and historical forms with the intention for people to use and appreciate them in their everyday life.
