Porcelain Birdcatcher Vase
A playful porcelain feathered vase. Each feather is formed separately and applied piece by piece. A reference to bird catchers seen in medieval imagery where men dressed in feathers to hunt birds.
Renaud Sauvé was born in Montreal, Quebec, where he has lived and practised for many years. Between 1978 and 1982 he spent time with his family living in Congo. His family returned to Quebec and later he studied both ceramics and philosophy, working in a number of mediums: painting, fresco and mosaic. Before starting Atelier des Cent-ans in 2010, he worked with Cirque du Soleil as prop master.
His studio, Atelier des Cent-ans is based out of Irlande, Quebec, where he focuses on crafting ceramics made of porcelain. In 2014, Renaud received a grant from the Conseil des Arts et des Lettres du Québec and held his first solo exhibition at Mjölk later that year. He has since shown his work in Quebec and Toronto.
