Pierre Casenove is a French ceramist and designer born in 1967. He studied at the Beaux-Arts, where he specialized in ceramics. Subsequently, the artist explored many fields, and associated his name with many brands. He creates glassware for the La Rochère house, porcelain for Medard de Noblat, lamps for the Berger house and furniture for the Woody house. In 1994, he became the artistic director of the Jars Céramique company, before setting up his own workshop in 2012. Convinced that art is a mirror of the soul, his ceramics are imbued with his philosophy which links the human and the object. Remarkably simple, Pierre Casenove gives us pieces of authenticity that have become rare in the design of our time. Designer of several wood-fired ovens since the age of twenty, he has just completed a Japanese Anagama oven (or Dragon oven) in his Jura workshop from which the ceramics presented at the OΔK gallery come. The use of an anagama oven allows to obtain impressive results on terracotta without using enamels thanks to the particularity of oxidations and reductions in such a furnace. Intense cooking (1350 °) but slow since it lasts 4 consecutive days and nights with the permanent risk of losing several months of work in the event of negligence. Collaboration with several major brands in the ceramic industry, (Jars, among others, since 1994), Exhibited at the Galerie Exante in Rome (paintings and objects) from 1990 to 2001, Exhibitions at Galerie Bensimon (2016), School Gallery (2017) in Paris then at Galerie OΔK since September 2019.
