Atelier Denis Merle-Rémond

               Céramiste Peintre

The artist....



Denis died suddenly the 2nd of February 2012 
leaving his wife and daughter.

This site is now dedicated to his memory and his work.

After more than a decade of hesitation between being an ‘artist’ or a ‘craftsman’, I lean today towards a creativity more relaxed but authentic, towards an inner peace. 

I prefer to move away from the seriousness of craftsmanship without nevertheless being hypnotised by the song of the sirens.  My key words are: naturally, simply. 

I agree with Rodin who declared, “ art is the expression of an inner truth”. 

My work today is and always has been oriented in the same direction, a research for vitality, joy and light; to answer the famous question “to be or not to be” – my answer is: one must be.
