Stoneware

 carbon trap

Michel Louis Viala

         I have been a working ceramist since 1970; I have participated in collective exhibitions, trade shows and galleries in Quebec, Europe and the United States. The many contacts made during these experiences, the exchanges with the masters at these events have very much enriched my processes.

My current production is structured around works that use both the raku firing technique and that of stoneware soda firing. The unique treatment provided by working with the flame during the firings, and the  particular glazes, develops a truly unique ceramic work of art.
