In Her Own Words – New Member Christiane Couvert
I am Belgian and moved two years ago to New Mexico, living now in Placitas. I have been working with clay since many years, hand building, and doing sculpture. All my work from this period is in France. I practice in France as a physical therapist and yoga and Qi gong teacher. I took many art classes, drawing, art history . . . . Since two years, I have been throwing. I started at New Mexico Clay in Albuquerque. I love experimenting in new styles. Living nearby nature inspires me, and I find a new way to combine clay and wood. Since last January, I am taking an Arita Porcelain class at UNM (Japanese technic) with Kathryne Cyman. I just love it. I took the intensive summer class and continue now.
