Michel Charlot: one year
In July 2008, Design PARADE 03’s jury selected Michel Charlot as their Grand Prix. One year later and thanks to his prize, Michel enjoyed from september 2008 to june 2009 a residency at the Manufacture Nationale of Sèvres. Just like Franck Fontana and Sébastien Cordoléani last year, he will show the result of his work in his personnal exhibition.
As the designer explains, working with ceramics was a fairly new experience: his project, for which he choose to focus on the shape of containers, was an occasion to interact with this new technique, to experiment with the various ways of assembling, glazing…. an occasion to take time to explore andeven eventually make mistakes.
A student at l’ECAL, Michel is graduating this year. The exhibit is also an opportunity to discover some other recent projects .
