Marc Ricourt

(French b.1963)

Marc lives and works near Dijon, France where he creates vessels using wood from his local area. He uses a tradition lathe to turn the wood before carving, bleaching or dying the material. His pieces are often reminiscent of organic forms such as seed pods, leaves and fins. In 2020 he was shortlisted for the Loewe Craft Prize.

‘I’ve based my work around a simple but very essential object, as it was the first tool created and used by mankind. My work on vessels has allowed me to develop a relationship between ancient or geographically remote cultures and civilizations and modern creations. The most important facet of my work is the research and exploration of new forms, colours, textures and finishes.’
