For Sylvie Godel, everyday life is a melting pot of inspiration: she immerses herself in vibrations, lights, colors, landscapes, journeys and encounters. Her poetic and sensual creations may be used daily, so as to contribute to making one’s life a pleasant adventure.
To transmute families of plates, bowls, jugs or bottles into story tellers and transform objects into pieces of art, that’s Sylvie’s goal. At the core of her work, one will find simplicity of form, light interplay, purity of volumes and matter’s visual qualities.
Sylvie regularly participates in artist residency programs in Japan and China. She uses porcelain she collects all over the world – Japan, England, Germany, France – to create delicate, small and versatile art pieces. Indeed, by assembling several objects Sylvie creates quiet and meditative installations. She can also propose single and functional pieces as unique miniature sculptures.
Swiss-born ceramist, Sylvie Godel graduated from Geneva HEAD – Haute Ecole d’art et design in 2004. Since 2005, she has been working independently at her workshop in Lausanne, same town where the MUDAC – Musée de Design et d’Arts appliqués Contemporains – has welcomed her artwork. Sylvie’s porcelain creations have been exhibited in galleries and design shops in Europe and Asia.
