ATELIER POLYHEDRE, an exciting French ceramics studio founded in 2004, develop tableware and decorative pieces both as limited editions and one-offs.
Baptiste Ymonet was born in 1973, studied at the School of Fine Arts (the Ecole des Beaux Arts) in Tours (in the Loire Valley), where he first discovered the appeal of working with ceramics.Eggs, balls and spheres are the recurrent sources of inspiration for his unique pieces of work.
Born in 1978, Vincent Jousseaume studied at the School of Fine Arts in Nantes, during which time he worked on designs in plastic based around the theme of mealtimes. It is hardly surprising, therefore, that he chose to specialise in ceramics and crockery, bringing a touch of disorder to all kinds of tables.
In 2008, the duo developed the CLING brand of crockery together.
In 2007, ATELIER POLYHEDRE’s work was awarded the Prix des Jeunes Créateurs (award for young designers) by the Ateliers d’Art de France (an organisation promoting the French crafts industry).
